Passion Week – Thursday (Passover)

Reds, Browns, A Lamb, Blood on the Doorposts, Unleavened Bread, A Passover Feast…

 

Today is rich with imagery!

Reds and Browns are still on the walls because the cross is very near now.

 

But there is a grand story to tell today and we will use food to tell it. We wish we could invite you all to come to our Passover feast tonight and hear what God has done!

My husband and I have been doing a little Passover meal on this Thursday for years. Sometimes it was very simple with just the 4 of us and sometimes we would have a few join us. It’s always been a rough attempt at it, because we are not Jewish. The “script” keeps getting adapted (and simplified) each year from the traditional Passover script and the Messianic Passover script to make the meal easier (and shorter) to do as a family and meaningful to invite others to (especially kids!). So we have 18 people coming tonight to share this with us and I’m pretty excited!

If all goes well, I would love to share this “script” and meal with you too! I’ll add pictures after tonight and tell you how it went. Our goal isn’t to follow the traditional meal perfectly. Our goal is to tell this marvelous story of deliverance from Egypt and tie it to the marvelous story of our deliverance from sin.

“Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!” (Revelation 5:12)

 

Here is a glimpse at the last year’s Passover feast.
