We Hope you join us for our “Stay-At-Home” Seder on Thursday, April 9, 2020 at 7pm. Pastor Scott Craig will detail each item as he conducts this celebration in the broadcast as you follow along.
The Seder is also called the Passover Meal, a Jewish tradition commemorating liberation of the Israelites from slavery in ancient Egypt. As Christians are grafted into the family, we know this event and do well to understand the significance of each item of this celebration.
Here’s what you need (if you are missing any of the items, be creative and substitute for something resembling the item)
-1 tbls. horseradish in a dish
-1 small clump of Parsley (or any “leafy” looking vegetable. This is a visual item only)
-Lettuce or celery (a little piece per person)
-Hardboiled egg (pre-sliced. 1 slice for each person)
-Applesauce (doll it up with cinnamon and/or raisons (enough for 1 tsp. per person)
-Matzo (1 box, or a couple saltine type crackers per person)
-A bone (i.e. leg bone from a drumstick. This is an optional item. It is a visual item).
-Salt water in a small dish (approx. 1/2 cup)
-Grape juice or red wine (approx. 1/4 cup for each person in individual glasses)
-A couple candles with matches (any size candles)
-A bowl with some water in it
Arrange the edible items on one large plate or in saucers, and place them on a table in front of you as you face your TV or computer.
