Dec 30 7pm Passover Meal with communion
Dec 31 9pm to midnight Passover night.
PArdon me? Passover?
It seems to me that adopting (to use a gentle verb for what I see happening) the name of THE key observance of another religious tradition for your New Year's commemoration (as I assume it really is) is a little bit less that respectful.
I have little problem with Christian congregations choosing to hold a Seder meal during the appropriate season (as long as it is done respectfully). But a PAssover meal that includes communion is at best confusing to me. And why would we mark PAssover at the totally wrong time of year anyway?
In the end it reeks of supercessionism. And I find it troubling.
