The Last Supper
Mark 14:12-26 or the story of the Last Supper in your favorite Bible Storybook.
Dear God, thank you for the gift of Communion. When we taste the bread and juice, help us remember how much you love us! And that we can seek forgiveness from you and others for the times when we mess up. Help us to show love and forgiveness to the people around us too. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
