SACRED TIME

One powerful way of deepening a relationship with God is to get immersed in God's story centered around the birth, life, death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus Christ, and on to the coming of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost and our growth in the Lord.  The ancient church developed the tradition of marking time by remembering the significance of the events surrounding the life of Christ.  We invite you into this sacred way of marking time. 

 

A great place to start this journey is to read this 14 page booklet on the Christian year entitled, Rhythms of Life: Seasons by Chris Webb.
