Stations of the Great Banquet


I came across this Stations of the Seder blog post at and thought to myself, why not "Stations of the Great Banquet" which RE-INTERPRET 'stations' from the Passover story along the lines of what Jesus was teaching in the parable of the Great Banquet.


For example:

(thinking out loud, please add your own)


Instead of a "Blood of the Lamb on the Doorpost" (saving only those who have the mark)...

how about a welcome door station where kids mark Jesus' cross (blood) on the door by spelling out the various words of "welcome" ...mimicking Christ's invitation to those in the street, and create a bedroom door hanger that says, "knock, and the door will be opened for you" (instead of "keep out!")



Instead of a passover bread/matza station...

how about a "manna" station where kids see a video clip then bring/pack groceries for the local foodbank (Christ went out into the street to bring them into the banquet)


Instead of a "plague" station...
how about a 'healing' stations where kids make first-aid/hygiene kits for a local street ministry, and include a healing scripture + coupon for free food.


Instead of a Charoset station (mud bricks mortar)...

How about a "reconciling and building relationships" table where kids play Jenga IN REVERSE...trying to reinsert blocks into a tippy tower after removing them (Christ's table, like the Ps 23 table) is where enemies come together.


Instead of an "Afikomen" (matza) station...

Have kids paint the matza cracker with Christ's words from the parable using peanutbutter or jelly and brushes.


Instead of a Seder Plate station...

Have the kids decorate a paperplate with a scene from the Banquet Parable, and the NAMES of those they are missing at their dinner table (family/friends/pets who have passed, etc).
