Abstract

Singing in the Holy Convocation of The United Holy Church of America William C. Turner, Jr. The law of the Old Testament (Lev 23:4-8) designates Holy Convocation as the Feast of the Lord. To Bishop Henry L. Fisher, the most prominent early leader of the United Holy Church, the "ingathering of convocation [is] a repeat of the return of God's scattered people who came from the East, the West, the North, and the South to Zion." While the first convocation of the people of the United Holy Church was regarded as a repeat of the day of Pentecost when the Spirit was poured out upon the multitude,2 thereafter the ingathering of God's people has been viewed by the United Holy Church as an unbroken fellowship of joyful celebration, catechetical instruction, and holy consecration. In the cities where it is held regularly it is one of the chief religious events of the year. Not only do members of the United Holy Church make the pilgrimage to the annual meeting, but also those of other evangelical churches who have an affinity for the tenets of holiness or enjoy the celebration of the "saints." Holy Convocation represents a milestone for God's "holy
