Even those who are not Christians know of the many wonderful miracles performed by Jesus Christ throughout His human ministry which are recorded in the Bible.

What do you know about these holy festivals in particular the Feast of Ingathering?

What would God have us do at a time such as this? We address these key questions in this issue of Beyond Today magazine.
