For the past few years, Taylorville UMC has hosted an Agape meal the week of Easter. Although the Agape meal originated with the Jewish faith, Christians have embraced this tradition as a way to gather in Christ and reflect of his time on the cross.
Our Agape meal was - as it should be - extremely simple. We had grape juice, cheeses, simple baked chicken with no seasoning, grapes, olives, apples, bread and nuts. We ate by candlelight, family style.
It was quite awesome and reflective to think back on the days when Jesus dined with his disciples before his death and resurrection. Such a great opportunity to remember why we celebrate HIM and the undying love this time of year!
