lost connection

I agree with beemanlee; I also think we've sort of lost connection with the real roots, and they are not the be found in the traditions and liturgy the early church fathers invented, although they might quote a lot of bible passages. But they are to be found with the real early church fathers, which are the Jews of the OT.
You learn so much by studying the biblical feasts as they were celebrated by Jesus himself, and as they're still celebrated in (Messianic) Jewish circles.
