The church’s liturgical seasons revolve around the life of Christ, providing a physical time and the necessary space to enter into the great gift of God in his Son. In this yearly cycle we become more fully alive to Christ’s presence in our world and more in tune with the practices of faith that continue to mold us as Christ’s followers. These titles help us to experience the primary liturgical seasons in fresh ways.
During Lent, we strive to free ourselves from all kinds of clutter-material and spiritual-in order to focus on God and turn back to him with our whole hearts. If this ""turning back"" is genuine, it will be a reorientation, a transformation. To help us enter into this season, Amy Ekeh guides readers in exploring three key moments in the life and ministry of Jesus. The result will be a better understanding of the authentic transformation that God calls each of us to embrace as individuals and as a community and a renewed desire to live God's own outward-looking, self-emptying, laying-down-one's-life kind of love.
In the ancient church, the season of Easter was known as the laetissimum spatium-""the most joyful space"" in the church's calendar. In Easter, Season of Life and Fire, Barry Hudock looks at the resurrection of Jesus and the wonderful season that celebrates it through the lens of three key Scripture passages. Each one sheds new light on both who Jesus is and what it means to be a Christian today.
Advent means arrival or coming. During this sacred season, we actively recall the arrival of Jesus as the Word made flesh, and we joyfully await his final return at the end of the age. But as we remember the past and anticipate the future, we are also attentive to our divine encounters in the present, the ways God 'arrives' in our everyday lives. Amy Ekeh's Advent, Season of Divine Encounter helps us look closely at three key Scripture passages to recall, recognize, and anticipate the ways God comes into our lives and our world.
It is not possible to celebrate the birth of Jesus, the Christ, the very Son of God, in a single day. The church gives us a season—from Christmas eve to the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord—to reflect with wonder on what God has done and is doing in our world. The gift of this child who would go on to give his very life for our salvation is the source of our hope in every age and through every storm. In Christmas, Season of Hope and Wonder, meditate with Catherine Upchurch on three New Testament passages that invite us to move through wonder to hope.
