A few years ago, I felt inspired to have my own Seder Dinner. I read some materials and planned a whole meal, and invited one other family to join in the dinner. I even bought a special Seder plate for the occasion and goblet for the occasion (pictured above).
The next year, I did it again… just for our own family. And the following year, I organized a Seder for our homeschool history co-op.
For dessert, I made a special treat, that I called “New Life Dessert”. It was a Martha Stewart recipe — chocolate cake baked in new and clean flowerpots, sprinkled with crushed, chocolate cookie crumbles, to look like dirt. For the “plant,” I used fresh sprigs of mint. If you really want to get creative, try to find some candy rocks. (I couldn’t find those… but I do remember searching for the right sized flower pots that year– it was freezing cold!)
Doesn’t the “new life dessert” look real?
At the end, I served the “new life dessert”, talking about the new life we have in Christ.
For a resource on putting together your own Messianic Seder Haggadah, here is one resource: A Christian Passover Seder by John Pontier. I also found many resources online.
Celebrate the new life we have in Christ!
