A Seder Message from The Rev. Canon Daryl Fenton
Over 3,200 years ago, The Lord had a conversation with Moses. Actually, it was more like a monologue with a Q&A session. In it The Lord instructed Moses to establish eight festivals or feasts. The Lord called them his feasts, He told Moses he should call them” Feasts of the Lord.” He did not call them the Feasts of Israelites, but the feasts that He ordained for his people. These feasts were a part of the Mosaic (or the Old) Covenant.
Chief among those feasts was the Sabbath. Passover (Pesach) is probably a close second. For Gentile Christians Pesach can have special meaning. It was at the celebration of Passover with his disciples that Jesus inaugurated what he called “The New Covenant, which is poured out for many.” Of all the Feasts of the Lord Passover is filled with a foreshadowing of the Lord’s redemption of his people through his Messiah. The Seder meal is the manifestation of this feast.
So, it is in that spirit that we will gather at 6:00 PM on the evening of Palm Sunday at Gateway Fellowship Church to celebrate this Feast of the Lord in all of its joy and promise. This is a celebration designed to keep our memories fresh with the things that the Lord has done for us. It is intended to be a celebration of remembrance and a time to rejoice in what the Lord has done for us.
redeeming work of the Lord together.
