Today is our local festival day. As far as I know we are not celebrating anything in particular – it is just a time to get together and eat, listen to music and share community.
The Ancients had regular festivals assigned for sacrifice, celebration and remembering significant events in their history. The festivals helped to cement the people’s shared history in their minds and to help them carry it forward.
Today I would like to remember significant events in my life, particularly those where I have felt God to be closest.
I am also going to eat well and enjoy the sunshine!
