Liturgical Year, Re-Meet Messianic Jewish Traditions

Dear Liturgical Church Year Events,

I wish to formally reintroduce to to Messianic Jewish Calendar Events.

I know you knew each other back in the day, but it doesn't seem that you mix company very much any more. If you recall, Liturgical Year, many of your events have their roots in (Messianic) Jewish Traditions.

Passover and Easter are always tied together, for Jesus and His disciples were observing Passover before He was crucified. It was at Passover that communion was started. Paul makes references to the feasts and their customs, but you, Liturgical Year, don't seem to delve into the Jewish traditions.

You seem to forget that Pentecost occurred during the Jewish Feast of Weeks (Shavuot), which occurred 50 days after the Feast of Firstfruits.

Even though you two (Liturgical Year and Messianic Jewish Traditions) currently aren't very close, I just wanted to remind you of the common history and friendship that you have shared in years past. Rest assured, that I'm also contacting Messianic Jewish Traditions with a similar note. I think both of you will benefit from a closer friendship. Please put any arguments behind you for the good of your church families.

Sincerely,
Someone who tracks Liturgical, Messianic, and Other Christian Events.
