Some friends of ours do an annual Seder Meal on Maundy Thursday during Holy Week each year. And although I wanted to try it out too, it didn’t get done last year because of Glory’s death, and this year it almost wasn’t going to get done because — well, because things are busy and I am stressed and I really thought I should just push it off until next year (again).
I decided, why not?
We’ll dip our toes into the water and just do little bits of the traditional Seder meal. Although we will not do the full liturgy (which could last around 3 hours), we will have the symbolic foods and read some of the Scriptures to go with it all. We’ll be doing it at my parents’ house right before our parish fellowship night (which Steven is leading), and will have no more than an hour. But I picked up a lamb roast, kosher wine, matzah bread, matzah ball mix, bitter herbs, etc. So I will work on cooking and preparing everything tomorrow afternoon. I’m excited about it. 🙂
These are the links I am working from this year, to pull together my semi last minute Seder meal.

Maybe next year I will be able to go more in-depth. We’ll see. 🙂
Blessings to you all this Holy Week!
You shall tell your son on that day,
‘It is because of what the LORD did for me when I came out of Egypt.’

Melissa, I LOVE this idea! You have just inspired me to re-think my dinner plans for tomorrow and make a Seder inspired meal. 🙂
@lightheartedmommy – Glad I could help! 🙂 I’d love to hear about what you decide to have for dinner, if you make changes to your plans.
