Will You Be Observing the Feast or Just Attending the Feast?

by Jim Franks

Each year, as we prepare to register for another Feast of Tabernacles, I can’t help but reflect on Feasts gone by. My family began attending the Feast of Tabernacles in the early 1960s, but we began observing the feasts sometime in the 1950s. You might wonder about my words—attending versus observing. What does it mean to observe the Feast but not attend the Feast?
