The Last Supper With Children... Holy Week Experiences

We read the story of the Last Supper and I weep, overwhelmed. The children sit silently, watching, listening. Emily is especially in tune with it all and responds, "The Bible is so cool."
We imagine we are the disciples and we partake together
with apple juice (with food colouring) and flat bread.
Little ones are always aware of older ones.

We examine our hearts and ask forgiveness for specific things.

We are in preparation for the garden where we will
undoubtedly experience deep sadness for Jesus' suffering.
But we must experience this in order to know the magnitude
of what He has done for us.
