The Blythlyway in Guyana

Tuesday, November 14, 2006

Harvest Sunday at Transfiguration Church in Betsy Ground, Canje. The church gets decorated with tall fresh sugar cane and flowers. Congregation members bring in fresh fruits and vegetables to decorate the alter and to sell for church donation following the service. The harvest Festival in the Guyanese Lutheran Church is a wonderful holiday which has translated a northern hemisphere harvest festival (largely dropped much to my dismay from the ELCA) into a yearly festival of harvest in which the bounty of nature and all of creation is celebrated. It just happens that the cane is harvested at this time of year and that the begining of the coming rainy season effectively makes this also a Harvest time though certainly not fall. In the evening we held the Harvest concert which featured songs and skits and plays performed by the members of all three churches to a packed house. It was hilarious and moving. A wonderful time for people of all ages to gather and perform for each other and give thanks. A time to recongnize that it is not through our individual work alone that we live from day-to-day and year-to-year.
