Passover Celebration

Sally Baker is an amazing woman at our church with a passion for teaching everyone from kids to adults.  This year, she put together a special Passover Celebration geared towards families.  During the celebration, she went through the Haggadah (liturgy), explaining all the different parts.  We each got the chance to taste the traditional Passover foods, including real matzah.  I sure learned a lot!  I was impressed that Emily actually tried most of the stuff--including the parsley dipped in salt water.  :op  Lincoln mostly concentrated on drinking his grape juice. :o)
