The Christian Year and Ordinary Life
2020 Calvin Symposium on Worship | Seminar
All calendars provide a rhythm and shape to our lives. The Christian year—Advent through Pentecost and Ordinary Time—is a calendar that provides a faith-filled rhythm that can order our time and deepen our discipleship. How does the Christian year shape our engagement with everyday life? How does orienting our worship around the Christian year affect a congregation’s life? Lisa M. Weaver began the seminar by providing a brief introduction to the Christian year and how it can reorient our view of time, and then panelists reflected on the formative nature of the Christian year in individuals and communities.
