We are celebrating our memorial Passover service tonight and we are all very excited!
We know that while we don't live in Israel, have a temple or have Torah as the consitution of the nation it is impossible to 'do' a proper Passover celebration BUT we can 'keep' it (or guard it) in our hearts and to the best of our ability whilst here in exile (ie: away from land of Israel).
And so we do!
We use it as a special teaching time for ourselves and our children and those who join us. Tonight, there will be 14 of us together to celebrate and learn. We read passages from the Word in both the Tanach ('old testament') and the Apostolic Record ('new testament') remembering that Yeshua our Passover Lamb has been sacrficed (1 Cor 5:6-8). We do some craft, have prayer and worship and maybe even some dancing!
I'll be posting more about how we remembered Passover for 2011 a little later on.
Right now, we have lamb cooking away in the oven, I'm finishing off some of the craft and preparing the rest of the Scriptures for our readings.
Is anyone else 'remembering' Passover tonight?
May YHVH bless you!
And we'll be thinking of our other Mishpokha (family) around the world doing the same.
Love to you and more to come,
