First Baptist Griffin hosted a Passover Seder meal on Thursday, March 28th (Maundy Thursday), at 6:00 p.m. in Morgan Hall led by Dr. Nancy deClaisse-Walford, Emerita Professor of Old Testament at Mercer’s McAfee School of Theology.

While she was in town, Dr. Nancy deClaisse-Walford gave a lecture entitled, “The Embodied Praise of God in the Songs of Ascents.” She discussed how these psalms may have been used by pilgrims ascending up to Jerusalem for festivals like the Passover. They call worshipers beyond an intellectual or emotional exercise to a fully-embodied experience of the Divine that incorporated all the senses.
