Dear Church Family,
Here’s the recipe my family will be using for the Lord’s Supper this Sunday. There are several recipes available on the Internet, but our staff have found this one to work well.
Ingredients 1 cup all-purpose flour 1/3 (scant) cup vegetable oil 1/8 teaspoon salt 1/3 cup water
Directions 1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. 2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 3. Mix flour, oil, and salt together in a bowl; add water and mix using a pastry cutter
until dough is soft. 4. Form dough into golf ball sized balls and press into very flat disks onto the
prepared baking sheet using your hands. Use a fork to poke several holes in the dough. 5. Bake in the preheated oven until bread is cooked, 8 to 10 minutes or until crispy.
Instead of just making the bread, why not make this a learning opportunity for the family? As the bread is baking, read Exodus Chapter 12, taking note of the number of times the Lord mentions Unleavened Bread.
Then, consider these questions.
1. What does ‘unleavened bread’ mean?
2. Can you think of any unleavened breads folks might use as part of their everyday meals?
3. Why did God tell the Hebrews to make unleavened bread?
4, Why is the Jewish holiday of Passover significant to Christians as we share in the Lord’s Supper?
5. Can you think of any application for us today?
Looking forward to a great day this Sunday.
It’s a joy to be your pastor!
