United News: November - December 2020
Welcome to the special November-December 2020 issue of United News, featuring Festival reports from Feast sites all over the world! Beginning on page 2, you can read about Feast experiences and unique ways brethren stayed connected and kept the Feast of Tabernacles and Eighth Day despite unusual circumstances that have characterized the year 2020.
The regular United News begins after the Feast photos, on page 17. Learn lessons from the book of Jonah in the Council Letter, written by Mario Seiglie. Media updates from Peter Eddington as well as an update on the construction of the Agua Viva school in Angola (written by Jorge de Campos) can be found on page 18. Announcements are on page 23. Local church news can be found on pages 26-27. Read about a women's enrichment weekend, a UYC camp and local outreach. An article on planned giving can be found on the last page of this issue, along with a Beyond Today TV program airing schedule.
In the Good News section (pp. 19-22), subjects covered are praising God even in times of trouble, serving and bearing fruit in the later years of one's life, how to have appropriate conversations about your faith at work and, for co-worker readers, the story of Florence Nightingale, who believed in "doing religion" rather than just "talking it."
