On the first Sunday of the new year, the Marvelous Light Consecration Service gives each of us an opportunity to consecrate ourselves to the Lord; to be set a part as Holy. So, don’t miss this amazing day of worship and re-dedication on Sunday, January, 1, 2023!
“And he took the cup,, and gave thanks, and fave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;
For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” St. Matthew 26:27-28
How to prepare for Consecration
If you plan to worship from home, the Authentic Communion Meal consists of the following ingredients.
- Unleavened bread (see recipe below)
- Bitter herbs (mixed greens)
- Salt water
- Boiled egg
- Haroset -use crunchy granola
Recipe for unleavened bread
- 1 c. flour
- 3 tbsp. sugar
- 1/3 tsp. salt
- 1/3 c. shortening
- 2 – 2 1/2 tbsp. milk
Sift flour, sugar and salt together. Cut in shortening using two knives. Add a little bit of milk at a time, and only enough to form into a dough. Roll dough (using a floured or silicone rolling pin) to 1/4 inch thick. A silicone pastry rolling mat, such as a Silpat will help keep the dough from sticking to the board without the need to add too much flour. Cut into 1/2 inch squares. Bake at 375°F for 15-20 minutes or until done
Bitter herbs dressing:
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1/4 Red wine vinegar
Salt/Pepper to taste Mix well and pour over mixed greens.
