    Traditionally, the occasion of the Last Supper, the Passover meal is a pivotal link between Judaism and Christianity. To Jews, it is a retelling of history centered on God bringing us out of bondage in Egypt with a "strong arm and a mighty hand," into the promised land of Canaan, where the Israelites built the Temple in Jerusalem and worshipped through daily prayer and sacrifice--lambs, bulls, pigeons, meal, wine and first fruits.
    To Christians the season centers on Jesus, His "full and perfect sacrifice, taking away the sins of the world."
    Events begin with His entrance into Jerusalem (Palm Sunday), preceded on the church calendar by five weeks of lent.
    Both religions have replayed these pivotal scenes for millenia. Join us in exploring this connection and its meaning at a Passover meal.
    No charge, but donations are welcome to help defray costs.
    RSVP Norma Canfield 570-253-1536 or Kathie Shelly 570-756-2429 by April 4 so we know how many places to set, and how much to buy and prepare.
