Harvest Festival 2022
It is a day on which many churches show solidarity to those without food and distribute the harvest donations they have collected among charitable organizations. The harvest festival is one of the oldest holidays still celebrated today. It is a day on which rural churches in particular are well attended.
Harvest is celebrated to give thanks for the crops, which have been safely harvested. Christians thank God for the food during harvest. Christians believe God made the world and everything in it. Christians also thank God for the variety of food and everything that helps the food to grow.
Harvest refers to the time during autumn when farmers traditionally brought in the crops that supplied their community through the year.
At harvest-time, the sharing of food helps Christians to remember that all good gifts come from God. Giving is a way of saying thank you to God in a practical way whilst remembering that He commanded all people to love and care for others.
