Member Ingunn Henrikssen is the primary organizer and cook for this annual event. Here, she shares her thoughts on meaning of this special gathering.....
The Seder meal at Mindekirken connects us with the Jewish heritage of Christianity in the context of the Easter season. The last supper of Christ was a Passover Seder meal commemorating the escape of the Jews from enslavement in Egypt, with components that trace their lineage to even earlier times in human history. The wine and unleavened bread that form a key component of the Seder were used by Jesus during the last supper to establish the ritual of communion that reconnects his followers with the ideals of community, caring, engagement and responsibility that Jesus modeled throughout his life.
