Passover Seder

This year we held a Passover Seder at the camp grounds.  A Seder of Passover is a time of reading the story from Exodus (11:1-10 and 12:23-34) how the Lord freed His people from bondage.  It is a time spent discussing the story, drinking four cups of wine (or in our case grape juice), eating matza or un-leavened bread, partaking of symbolic foods and rejoicing in our freedom that ultimately comes through Christ.

"From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the Lord is to be praised.  The Lord is exalted over all the nations, his glory above the heavens.  Who is like the Lord our God, the one who sits enthroned on high, who stoops down to look on the heavens and the earth?" Psalm 113:3-6

"Not to us, O Lord, not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness."  Psalm 114:1

"Praise the Lord, all you nations; extol him, all you peoples.  For great is his love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever.  Praise the Lord."  Psalm 117
