At the Passover, the people gathered around the table with symbols of their liberation.
The blood on the doorpost reminds them that God heard their cries and acted as protector and liberator. The unleavened bread marks the flight out of bondage.
Now it is our turn to prepare ourselves and the meal in accordance with God’s menu.
As we chop vegetables, stir the broth, and preheat the oven, we remember all that God has provided for us.
As we eat and drink, lament or laugh, we re-member that God is trustworthy. We share our whole selves with one another and the divine.
In the darkest of times, God is with us. God is worthy of our trust and praise. Amen.
