Days, Months and Seasons

A Brief History of Time Measurement

longcase
Longcase clock by Luke Smyth of Yoxford, England c. 1790

The doctor told me to run 10 kilometres a day to lose some weight.
After one week, I was 70 kilometres from home!

Ever wondered why there are sevendays in a week?

Our calendar originates from a mixture of pagan and mythical beliefs, including:

It is convenient for followers of a religion to conform to society norms, even when there is no religious connection. For example, our way of measuring time (see hours, minutes and seconds) are based on an early Babylonian system, and our modern calendar is based on pagan practices and astrology.

But whether we are 'religious' or not, we do not think of the calendar as a pagan thing; it's merely a means to measure time, using things called 'days' and 'months'.

Passover was a magical time for us growing up in the 70's and 80's. We were members of the WWCG and my mom and dad truly did the feasts up for us.  I have since dropped out of any church, but do remember the Sabbath every week and the holy days. Thanks for the memories.

Great Passover night in seeing our Grand-kids learn and celebrate what God wants all of us to do.

I colored Easter eggs as a child, but my Kids and Grand-Kids did NOT.  Praise God for that !!! [smile]

Jesus, apostles observed Passover, not 'Easter'

Passover is not just a Jewish holiday, says a new video series by a Christian teacher of Hebraic roots.

It is one of the "Feasts of the Lord" in the Bible, all of which have special meaning and significance for all believers in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The feasts were commemorated by Jesus and His apostles – and continued to be observed by Jesus' followers in the first century even after His death and resurrection.

Today is the last day of Unleavened Bread (Part of Passover)

What Does the Feast of Unleavened Bread Mean for Christians?

Today is the last day of the Feast of Passover (the Days of Unleavened Bread) -- what does it mean for Christians?

Recipe: Flourless Chocolate Cake

[IMG_2360-450x450]

For those of us who don’t celebrate Passover, it’s a mystery.

We know it’s a major Jewish holiday. We’re pretty sure it’s a happy one. We think it goes on for a few days.

But more than that – as I said, mystery.

Oh, and one more thing: certain foods are forbidden. Like flour. And leavening, as in yeast, baking powder, baking soda…[trans]

Now, for those of us who bake, that makes Passover a pretty challenging occasion, culinarily speaking.

Start with “no flour.” OUCH. How many baked goods can YOU think of that don’t include flour? A fruit-filled meringue pavlova is one. Lemon soufflé is another. And then there’s…. hmmm…
