27 January – 01 February 2014
M Matt 26.1-16: Jesus is anointed for his death and burial; pray for those who work in hospices and prepare the dying for a good death.
W Matt 26.36-46: the disciples’ sleep hides Jesus’ anguish from them; whose suffering do you need to awaken to and engage with today?
T Matt 26 47-56: Judas kisses, the soldiers arrest, a weapon is drawn & Jesus willingly yields; in the midst of betrayal & violence, what does his response mean for you?
F Matt 26.57-end: Peter’s previous defiance fades & burns in blatant denial; when do you find it hard to be loyal to Jesus and why?
S Matt 27.1-10: Judas takes his own life & his money buys a burial ground; but did it have to end this way? What do you think Peter might say?
