Day of Harmony is a week away and I have some questions?

How do we celebrate (if that's the right word) the days of significance? Is there a uniform way? Is it different for each day?

Is there ritual in Jediism? Or is it personal and individual as to how each person does things?

Thanks,
O.

Official holidays here are generally recognized however the individual sees fit. You'll most likely see some messages posted from the Clergy here as well, specifically a new sermon or lesson to contemplate on these special days.

You'll see mentions of the Day of Harmony around the site and I'm sure some will share how they are observing it. For this day in particular, a lot of people make extra effort to reach out to those who may have been a source of conflict in the past and try to rebuild those bridges in a harmonious way.

It might not sounds like a brilliant way to celebrate a Day of Harmony, but I'll be attending a funeral. We need ends, however sad, as much as beginnings for Harmony, so I'm happy about this.

Every day is as equally spiritual as all others.

Much like how you can find the Force as much here at the Temple as you can everywhere you go.

But some days we focus on one aspect above others, to focus on that and renew our appreciation for that significance.

For me in Portland, I will be joining along with other people, meeting and establishing new connections for the group I'm starting to begin building a harmonious network with other religions and people. I will also be writing a very focused sermon.

Sorta sounds like harmony to me. Just this day, above all others, we make a point of focusing on that harmony. Yes, I can focus on it today, tomorrow, and every day, but this is just the time we've dedicated to remind Jedi to remember that harmony.
