Easter comes to Farragut

They got together to light a candle, eat some bitter herbs and remember a night that happened more than 3,000 years ago. About 200 members and guests at Concord United Methodist Church filled tables in the worship center on April 12. The mission is to reflect on the roots of Christianity and retell the story of God delivering the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. The Passover story is in the Book of Exodus or the Shemot in the Hebrew Bible. Each year CUMC puts on a festive yet orderly “seder” meal, a custom that has been observed for millennia. The Hebrew word “seder” means “order,” or “arrangement,” and the crowd was instructed not to eat or drink anything until instructed.
