Mark 13-14

Dinner Guest

Dinner Guest

Poem – Valmai Redhead
Mark 14:1-9

Who would you choose to invite as a dinner guest
living or dead?

I would choose this woman –
the unnamed woman
who eclipsed protocol
and took a risk
when she broke open that which was very precious

in the house of Simon
the leper
named –
once marginalized
but now included.

This woman
once included
but now marginalized
by dinner guests

yet her unrestrained love
by Jesus.

Remembered forever
this woman with no name.

We have set this website up to share the resources from the book ‘The Illustrated Gospel Project’,
plus the extra stuff that we couldn’t fit in the book.
But there is still room! Room for what you and your community of faith might create in response to God’s creative Word at work, and at play in your midst.
So if you create a drama, a song, a prayer or a responsive reading, we’d like you to share it.
