The last few years, I’ve taken to publishing some of the lessons I learn while deleavening. After all, the physical removal of leaven from our homes before the Days of Unleavened Bread (and the eating of unleavened bread during the Days) is intended to teach us spiritual lessons, after all, right?
I’ll include some links to previous posts I’ve made about those lessons, but this year I thought I would do something different. I’d like to know what lessons YOU’VE learned during your deleavening this year! After all, one of the best ways to learn is from OPE: Other People’s Experience! Please take a few moments to write in the comments section below some of the spiritual lessons you learned while removing leaven from your dwelling places this year–or, if there is a good one from a previous year, feel free to list that one, too! If you need something to get started, feel free to click on the links below for some of what I’ve written before.
Thanks, and I pray that all of you have a marvelous and truly meaningful Passover and Days of Unleavened Bread!
(Again, here’s some of mine, but I am looking forward to reading yours in the comments!)
(EDIT: My thanks to those of you who brought up Taco… er, I mean “Spock Hotel”! It pointed out that (1) I had left out the 2010 post (now added), and (2) I have good news concerning the “yeast” (torula yeast) in that Taco meat: it is not leavening! See the comments about that in that particular post for the lengthy discussion (the post actually includes the conclusion). Also, I rearranged the post listing below so that it is in chronological order. Thanks again for your comments, and keep them coming!)
