Annual Dragon Boat Festival, also known as Duanwu Festival held throughout China. As the 3-day-holiday coming, people gather with their families and Christians are encouraged to evangelize their relatives.

“It’s easier to reunion with our family, as long as you buy a ticked and you go back home and you see them. While how can we reunion with our Heavenly Father? ” said one preacher, reported on GospelTimes, “The moment we walk with God is the moment when we reunion with God.”

“ Altogether, Enoch lived a total of 365 years. Enoch walked faithfully with God; then he was no more, because God took him away.(Gen. 5:23-24)” as the Bible recorded about Enoch, how can we walk with God? Enoch set a good example. He fear God and love God, know that he’s living on earth yet never forget about God. This is his good example of walking with God.

Walking with someone means you have the same heart with him/her, as Amos3:3 reads, “Do two walk together unless they have agreed to do so?” This Scripture applies on not only marriage, but also the relationship between we human and God. 

Christians are encouraged to meditate on building real and firm relationship with God, via any form, such as meditation on holidays.

The Dragon Boat Festival is set to commemorate the life and death of the famous Chinese Scholar, Qu Yuan. The traditional holiday occurs near the summer solstice, specifically on the fifth day of the fifth month of the Chinese calendar. 

During this festival, Zongzi, a kind of food made mainly with rice and meat, is the most famous one among Dragon Boat Festival foods.
