Bitter (Better) Herbs

Last weekend, our home community celebrated the fulfilled Seder.  For you recent converts that would be the Passover meal that Jesus ate with His disciples the night before his trial and crucifixion. Ours was a modified version of the elaborate symbolic meal “enjoyed” by Jews which commemorates God leading the Hebrews out of their enslavement in Egypt.  For Christians however, through Christ’s death…
