Sukkot (see below)
Sukkot (pronounced Su-Coat), which is also known as "The Feast of Tabernacles," is a biblical holiday that celebrates the end of harvest and God's provision for the Jews in the wilderness after their exodus from Egypt.
Of the three major holidays prescribed by God in the Old Testament, only Sukkot has been traditionally overlooked in its connection to Jesus and the Christian life. Pesach (Passover) is remembered in connection to Jesus' sacrificial death. Shavuot (Pentecost) is remembered in its connection to the beginning of The Church. And Sukkot is almost entirely forgotten. We're changing this for three reasons:
1. Celebrating Sukkot reminds us that Jesus is our light and living water! (See John 7:37 & John 8:12).
2. Celebrating Sukkot reminds us of the transient and fragile nature of life and points us to our need for God as we navigate the difficulties of earth.
3. Celebrating Sukkot reminds us that we should value God's presence now and long for God's presence in eternity.
