The Festival of Weeks

Count off seven weeks from the time you begin to put the sickle to the standing grain. 10 Then celebrate the Festival of Weeks to the Lord your God by giving a freewill offering in proportion to the blessings the Lord your God has given you.

Deuteronomy 16:9-10

Last night was the first night of the Jewish festival of Shavuot, described in Deuteronomy.

My heart aches for those suffering death, destruction and displacement today in the lands we read about in the Bible.

Please pray with me for justice and for peace.
