Maundy Thursday is the first of the three days of solemn remembrance of the events leading up to and immediately following the crucifixion of Jesus. On his last night before his betrayal and arrest, Jesus washed the feet of his disciples, gave them a new commandment to love one another as he had loved them, and shared the last supper. To commemorate that night, we will gather on Zoom for a Messianic Seder Celebration and remembering led by Pastor Adam Knight.

Commemorate with us at 6:30 PM on April 1st….

A Message from Pastor Adam, March 31, 2021

Friends,

I am so excited to celebrate the Messianic Seder Celebration with you tomorrow night.  Our evening will begin online at 6:30pm.  The celebration is a Messianic Passover, which is a passover gathering for those who believe in Jesus Christ as the Messiah of God.  You should have received the shopping list already, along with a picture of how to set up the various elements.

 

One of the elements is called “charoset” and is an apple/cinnamon/nut mixture.  I am including the recipe to prepare this, but make sure that if you are gathering with others that there are no nut allergies present.

 

Charoset | makes 2 cups
INGREDIENTS
-2 medium red apples grated
-2 tbsp. chopped walnuts
-2 tsp. cinnamon

-1 tbsp. grape juice

DIRECTIONS
-Mix them all together

 

We will not be eating the full passover meal – this is simply a  liturgical journey through the passover celebration, so we will follow the liturgy and be tasting many of the smaller elements gathered around your seder plate.  You should also have received a scanned copy of the liturgy.  Make sure you have that handy for the evening as there will be many times that you all will be responding and reading along with me and the folks gathered in my home.

 

Again, I look forward to our celebration tomorrow night.  Even if you are unable to gather the various elements and do every step of tasting the various parts, I hope you will still come.  I think, even just observing the celebration would be a blessing and a growing experience.

 

I’ll see you all online tomorrow night.

 

Blessings,

Adam
