We will also learn more about how our Jewish sisters and brothers live and what they believe focusing on Pesach or Passover which is a spring festival which last for 7 or 8 days.
The name Passover comes from the story of the angel of death passing over the houses of the Israelites, Pesach comes from the paschal lamb which was once sacrifice when there was still a Temple in Jerusalem. It is a time when Jewish people thank God for their freedom and remember those who are enslaved today. Hospitality is important at Pesach.
Our last topic of the term is ‘Hope’ within the theme of Loving within Advent/Christmas, when we wait in joyful hope for Jesus; the promised one.
In that region there were shepherds living in the fields keeping watch over their flock by night. Then an angel of the Lord stood before them and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for see – I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people: to you is born this day in the city of David a saviour, who is the Messiah, (The Christ) the Lord. This will be a sign for you: you will find a child wrapped in bands of cloth and lying in a manger.”
Scripture: Luke 2:8-12
