A wonderful resource of colourful customs, delicious recipes and entertaining games for your family and friends! "Come with me on a journey through the festival year of the Bible," invites Margot Hodson. "We will explore traditions that began in Old Testament times. As we go through the seasons together we get a feel for the rhythm of the year that Jesus himself knew from childhood. The festivals are havens where we can pause to take a breath: for children they can make up the landscape of the year and are full of excitement and expectancy. For older people they are anchors to happy memories, and familiar companions." A Feast Of Seasons will introduce the Bible's rich traditions to a new audience. Discover Passover, with its stress on sacrifice; Pentecost, emphasising the first fruits of the harvest; Yom Kippur, a time to pray; Tabernacles, a chance to focus on Jesus's presence amongst us; Rosh Hashanah, a trumpet call to the presence of God; Sabbath, a break for rest and family prayer. Margot Hodson explores what these ancient celebrations can mean for Christians today, showing how we can discover fresh riches within our faith.
