If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides,

so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ.

1 Peter 4:11



Life Question: How important is it to be spiritually connected to each




Though I am not Jewish, the church I belong to celebrated Passover during

Maundy Thursday as a part of the season of Lent. The group of us that

came gathered around the long table in our Friendship Room greeted by

a sight of bread, crackers, assorted other foods and wine(of the non-alcoholic

variety of course).

As Jesus did in His day and washed the feet of his disciples, we went around


The evening continued with a series of prayers in preparation of the meal and

after prayers, and our pastor said a prayer over the meal, the meal commenced.

We broke bread and passed it on to each other and partook of the other elements

of the supper.

During this point in the dinner, our pastor told us that the Passover meal back in

Jesus' day would last six hours as the wine and food flowed and fellowship went

on into the wee hours. He went on to tell us about Exodus 6:6-7--The Four Cups

Say therefore to the Israelites, "I am the Lord, and I will free you from the burdens

of the Egyptians and deliver you from slavery to them. I will redeem you with an

outstretched arm and with mighty acts of judgment. I will take you as my people,

and I will be your God. You shall know that I am the Lord your God, who has

freed you from the burdens of the Egyptians.


1. Cup of Freedom

2. Cup of Redemption

3. Cup of Salvation

4. Cup of Sanctification


Afterword, we shared our faith stories and stories of our travels we took in keeping

with the many journeys of Jesus and his followers. As we sat eating, laughing and

sharing, I thought about Jesus and his follower and what a sense of belonging that they must've felt in that moment, even though they didn't always understand the parables

Jesus spoke in.

During the meal and fellowship I know I felt the presence of God there that night, even

if no one else felt it, there was in me, a great sense of peace. Made me wonder.....did the

disciples feel that same peace too?
