Passion Week – Thursday (Passover)

Reds, Browns, A Lamb, Blood on the Doorposts, Unleavened Bread, A Passover Feast…   Today is rich with imagery! Reds and Browns are still on the walls because the cross is very near now.   But there is a grand story to tell today and we will use food to tell it. We wish we could […]

The Climax of the Entire Calendar is Upon Us

A feast, a celebration, a party like no other. Preparing for Resurrection Sunday? Resurrection Sunday is a shadow of that someday soon feast – The Marriage Supper of the Lamb.
