Supper helps bring Passover to life

ANDERSON, Ind. — When the sweet tasting mixture of apple, nuts and honey is served next weekend at Glad Tidings Assembly of God, there’s more than a good meal on the table.

There’s also a sense of redemption and a history of Passover.

“I hope people are able to just join in on what it must (have been like) for the disciples in the upper room the night the Lord was betrayed,” said the Rev. Jamey Moore, senior pastor at the church.

“Each of the disciples ask, ‘Is it I that the Lord is talking about as far as betraying him. I think that’s the heart of the gospel that we look within ourselves and see where we need to surrender to the Lord.”

Glad Tidings, 815 E. School St., will host “The Living Lord’s Supper,” in which church members re-enact the Last Supper.

“I hope people will take away, first of all, the necessity of having a relationship with Christ. It has to become personal,” said Cozette Heller, a member of Glad Tidings.

She coordinates much of the food preparation for the observance, which is set for 6 p.m. on Saturday, March 9 and 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, March 10.

For the supper, she prepares haroset, a sweet mix of apples and nuts.

To research the meal, Heller visited Seder suppers held by the Sha’arey Yeshua congregation, a Messianic Jewish synagogue in Indianapolis. Dancers from the synagogue will perform at the supper.

The Seder feast commemorates the exodus of Jews from Egypt and is celebrated on one of the first nights of Passover. The seven days of Passover begin the evening of March 25.

“I’ve tried to bring some of the flavor to this and make it a little authentic in terms of what they actually would have been eating,” said Heller.

The Glad Tidings event does not include a full Seder. “What we’re trying to do is keep a lot of the elements of the traditional Passover Seder,” she said.

Instead, the men portraying the disciples will contemplate the meaning of communion and the personal relationship to Christ.
