passover seder meal

at 3pm today, the reb will be doing a passover seder meal with the myfers (methodist youth fellowship) of kl wesley. they have invited the reb to show them what a passover seder meal is like so that it can help them understand the background of jesus' last supper.

the reb heard that the myfers opened the meal to others so that myafers (young adults) and some other adults in the church are also coming, making a number around 60-70! that is a big meal! the reb heard that the myfers are using sparkling grape juice for the cups and real roast lamb! the reb is making the haroseth (the sticky stuff resembling the mortar). it would be a fun time.

world water day

today is World Water Day 2010. the theme for this year is "Clean Water for a Healthy World".

The World Water Day 2010 and its campaign is envisaged to:
Raise awareness about sustaining healthy ecosystems and human well-being through addressing the increasing water quality challenges in water management and

Raise the profile of water quality by encouraging governments, organizations, communities, and individuals around the world to actively engage in proactively addressing water quality e.g. in pollution prevention, clean up and restoration.

we take clean water for granted in the developed world. but for many people, clean drinking water remains a major problem.

and what about dry places next to seas and oceans? there is so much water but not for drinking.

can desalination on a large scale be profitable? can deserts be turned to agricultural lands? can the parched lands bloom again?

what can we do on our part? download a free kit.
