Friday evening, September 29, 2006 will be very special at the NWALC in Portland, Oregon. We will gather at 6:45pm as families (if at all possible) to welcome the Sabbath the way believers in Old Testament times did. Richard & Jo Ann Davidson from the Andrews Theological Seminary will lead us in welcoming the Sabbath using the shofar, the candle lighting, the wife blessing her husband, the husband blessing his wife and his children and the eating of the Challah bread and drinking of the fresh grape juice. Following this they will explain the Biblical and cultural basis for each of these activities. You won’t want your family to miss it.
