I am no preacher, but, am a prime sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too, when I read “The Holy Bible” KJV,  the following verses were given in the context of “convocation”.

Exo 12:16 And in the first day
there shall be an holy convocation,
and in the seventh day
there shall be an holy convocation to you;
no manner of work shall be done in them,
save that which every man must eat,
that only may be done of you.

Lev 23:2 Speak unto the children of Israel,
and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of the LORD,
which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations,
even these are my feasts.

but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest,
an holy convocation;

Lev 23:37 These are the feasts of the LORD,
which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations,
to offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD,
a burnt offering,
and a meat offering, a sacrifice,
and drink offerings,
every thing upon his day:

38. Beside the sabbaths of the LORD,
and beside your gifts,
and beside all your vows,
and beside all your freewill offerings,
which ye give unto the LORD.

Num 28:18 In the first day shall be an holy convocation;
ye shall do no manner of servile work therein:

19. But ye shall offer a sacrifice made by fire
for a burnt offering unto the LORD;
two young bullocks, and one ram,
and seven lambs of the first year:
they shall be unto you without blemish:
20. And their meat offering
shall be of flour mingled with oil:
three tenth deals shall ye offer for a bullock,
and two tenth deals for a ram;
21. A several tenth deal shalt thou offer for every lamb,
throughout the seven lambs:

to make an atonement for you.
