The Feast was blessed with gorgeous sunny weather, good food and warm, familial fellowship.
Shortly before the Feast, the state of Baden-Württemberg, where the Feast sight is located, switched to the “3-G-regulation,” meaning only vaccinated, recovered and tested people were able to attend the convention. To make it as easy and inclusive for everyone to be able to attend services and eat in restaurants we were blessed to set up our own test center in cooperation with a professionally-run test center from Cologne. This effort proved to be a blessing since everyone appreciated the help and care and the atmosphere was very cheerful and appreciative.
Activities during the Feast included children’s lessons, a ladies’ Bible study, adult discussion on biblical topics, a widows’ coffee and cake afternoon, a family-style hymn sing, a hike at a mountain lake, a children’s afternoon at a water park and a family afternoon with pizza and games.
A special highlight this year was a concert evening with the Hebrew Melody Trio from Zurich. The performers were the Swiss violinist Anne Battegay, French cellist Francois Robin and Italian pianist Allesandro Tardino. The three internationally renowned musicians delighted their audience with an exquisite program of “Hebrew & Other Melodies” at the highest level.
It was the overall impression that this year’s Feast of Tabernacle was blessed with inspired spiritual food through the sermons and Bible studies and lots of peace, joy and warmth among the fellowship. Despite the difficulties we experienced before the Feast, this truly became one of the best Feasts ever.
