But Paul’s words also reflect his direct ordination as an apostle and bishop by Christ Himself. Upon eating the new fruit, a blessing is offering thanking God for bringing the Jewish people to this new season.
As Jews, we are told that on Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, “it is written” and on Yom Kippur, the Day of Repentence, “it is sealed.” What is “it”? Our fate for the next year. Where is it written and sealed? In the proverbial Book of Life.
So you meet your Jewish friends walking along the street this week. What are acceptable ways for non-Jewish people to respectfully convey warm wishes to them for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur (the Jewish New Year and Day of Atonement, reseptively)?
Now before the feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that his hour had come to depart out of this world to the Father, having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end. And during supper, when the devil had already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray him, Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he had come from God and was going to God, rose from supper, laid aside his garments, and girded himself with a towel.

Couples who have a certain date in mind don’t have to bother with seasons or discounts. Tens of thousands of couples get married on Valentine’s Day, Christmas or on a date that is personally important to them. It could be the day they first met, their first date or even their parents’ wedding day. But for everyone else, the process requires some cerebration.

After all, these establishments operate year-round, which means that they are forced to offer special deals to attract business during the slow season. It is also important to note that winter is a great time to visit the Caribbean. Not only are prices low, but special packages are offered to newlyweds. That may be why the region is the most popular honeymoon destination for Americans.
