Unleavened Bread

Today we discussed Communion. We read Luke 22:7-20.
Unleavened bread is flat, because it is made without yeast. Yeast symbolizes sin, so unleavened bread is a picture for us that the Bread of Life, Jesus, is without sin.
Our curriculum did not call for us to make unleavened bread, but I thought it would be nice for us to make it and compare the differences in yesterdays recipe.
At dinner we discussed why we do communion and the differences in the recipes (what ingredient caused the bread to rise and not rise). Afterwards we took a few minutes to remember what the bread and juice represent, to thank Jesus, and to ask for forgiveness for our sins. We then ate the bread and drank the juice.

Hannah's responsibility was the eggs and oil.
Lauren's responsibility was the flour and salt.

Ok so this picture is Micah's own experiment per his own words.

Our bread and juice.
