Unleavened bread is what we make for ordinance suppers. When someone gets baptised we have a very traditional and biblically based washing of the saints feet, partaking of the blood, and His body. So, since Den was the one to baptise, it was my job to make the unleavened bread that represented the body. It's a tradition that has been handed down for many many generations. It is always neat to be a part of anything that old and traditional.
The first time I made it for the church it was a huge crowd, at a camp out meeting. I thought to myself I have NEVER made it before. I had only watched my mother make it when I was young, but Sis. Kim walked me through it. This bread is made with only flour and water. I mean how much more simple can it get? The point is to not allow anything in it to cause it to rise. Plus, its not really supposed to be tasty, since we are not eating it to fill our bellies, but to remember what Jesus did for us.
So Cheryl came over yesterday to watch me make this ancient bread, and she thought it may be neat to take some pictures. While in the process of making this bread, each boy asked me what I was making, and when I would say, "Unleavened bread" they would say, "Lemon bread?" After the third or fourth time it made me giggle. I think they were hoping for something a little more tasty! lol
The ordinance supper was obviously small, but very touching.
