Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.


Passover Photos

King of Peace held its 10th Passover Seder tonight, as usual on the second night of Passover, which allows Jewish families to hold their own Passover on the first night at home. We recounted once more how G-d has brought us out of slavery to freedom. If Adonai had not brought the children of Israel out of Egypt with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm, we would still be slaves. This seems to be a story of ancient history until we recount it and realize that to this very night, if God does not set us free, we are enslaved. The story of how the Lord brings us freedom is a story for each generation.

This picture acknowledges the awkward setting of an Episcopal Church for a Jewish feast, but our seder is a traditional Jewish one in which Jews enjoy their feast alongside Christians.
