Communion with Gareth
Last night we celebrated a Pesach (Passover) Seder Meal with new friends. This is our 3rd celebration and we hope to keep it an annual tradition wherever we are to enrich our experience of the Lenten season. If you're interested I've linked to some documents I wrote explaining it a little. I spent most of yesterday cooking and preparing food: hommus, baba ganoush, pita wedges, quinoa tabouli, beetroot salad, roast lamb and gravy, haloumi, matzah (unleavened bread) and baklava. I felt like it was a wonderful evening, I hope our guests did too. My darling husband was kind enough to spend most of this morning washing-up.

  • Table of Symbols: explains the significance of actions and symbols used throughout
  • Haggadah: this is the liturgy we follow. Versions of these have been passed down for hundreds of years. We adapted this one from a hard copy version my family used many years ago.
  • Passover Explanation: this is a personal explanation about why we choose to celebrate this ancient festival and it's significance for us as Christians.
Here are some childrens drawings of the last supper Jesus shared with his disciples. I think leading this craft at Sunday School with the children a few years was actually what got me thinking in part about this beautiful, ancient, God-given celebration and it's significance for me and us today.
