Holy Thursday 2011

Holy Thursday

Alice Gunther from Cottage Blessings is quite infamous for her Teatimes. Two years ago the kids and I had a version of Alice's Holy Thursday and Good Friday Teas. Little Miss Chatterbox loved them and requested them this year and last. But preparing for two teas back to back is more than I can handle right now so we had an extremely simplified version for Holy Thursday. We always have sparkling grape juice to represent the wine that Jesus and the Apostles drank at the Last Supper. And we ate pita bread as the unleavened bread. We had a "mount of olives" on the side ("And when they had sung a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives." Mk. 14: 26.) and "Fig" Newtons because figs grew in Gethsemane. We talked about why Jesus is the Lamb of God and read about the Last Supper from the Bible. I knew this "meal" wouldn't fill them up so we also had pizza for the only reason of it being very easy! After our meal, the kids take turn washing eachothers feet just as Jesus washed the apostles feet.
