Borrowed Places

Maundy Thursday, and reading Maggi Dawn's reflection for today in "Giving It Up" in which she reminds us that, according to the tradition, Jesus both began and ended his earthly life in borrowed places.  Born in a borowed room/stable at the inn, he borrowed an upper room in order to share a 'Last Supper' with 'the twelve', a significant and memorable occasion from which emerge the words and the tradition 'do this in remembrance of me'.

We like to have our own place, our own things.  Are we ready and willing to borrow when we need to do that?  And are we ready to lend what we have when others need to borrow it?
