Celebrating the first fruits of harvest - Kodiak Daily Mirror: Religion

Celebrating the first fruits of harvest

Posted: Friday, May 24, 2019 9:00 am

KODIAK — Exodus 23:16 – “Celebrate the Festival of Harvest with the first fruits of the crops you sow in your field. Celebrate the Festival of Ingathering at the end of the year, when you gather in your crops from the field.”

The idea of the “Festival of Ingathering” has settled in my mind as we gather this weekend for Kodiak Crab Festival and to share in the honors of Memorial Day.
