Recapturing meaning in our celebrations through ancient OT parties.
November 4/5 - December 30/31
When I look at my calendar I often look at holidays as 'days off' more than anything. A time to do what I want. Granted, that rest and 'time off' is important, but has self indulgence become the main thing when it comes to our celebrations? The way people celebrated in the Bible can be very enlightening when it comes to the way we celebrate. Festivals where fun, brought family and friends together, AND had deep rich meaning that celebrated God and His goodness. We need more of that! We tend to divide our rituals and our celebrations, making our celebrations meaningless and our traditions bland. Let's change that and learn to party - Old (Testament) School!
