Maundy Thursday Seder Meal

This evening we celebrated a Seder Meal / Eucharist and Footwashing with the wonderful David Winston ensuring we don’t forget the Jewishness of this evening. We were reminded that this meal has a history going back unbroken through time to the Exodus, each element of the meal referring to a part of the story about how the people of Israel were freed from slavery in Egypt, how they travelled through the wilderness to the promised land. Amongst the elements the unleavened bread, the herbs, salt water, horse radish sauce, lamb (yam in our case!) and the drinking of the four cups, all have important meaning in the story and I particularly found the third cup of liberation very moving.
