My wife and I led a Passover seder this evening for the singles ward in which my former executive secretary (from my first eighteen months or so as a bishop) now lives. (I know, I know. It’s no longer Passover season. But one does what one can.)
I enjoy being involved in such occasions. They seem to me a wonderful teaching opportunity to talk about Exodus, Passover, Last Supper, the sacrament, bondage, deliverance, atonement, Elijah, and a host of other Gospel themes. I would like to see Latter-day Saints learn more about the Passover, and am happy when some incorporate it into their own practices at least once.
I just wish that I had been in better voice tonight. I’m finally beginning to come out of a very bad cold, but was still feeling quite a bit off.
