What is Lent?
By Ryan Flanigan | | Celebrate, Spiritual Growth | Church Calendar, fast, Lent, Ryan Flanigan, Text
Lent is about rhythm. We are rhythmic creatures. We do things in sequences and steps, marching to the beats of drummers. The problem is, there are many drummers out there, pounding away to capture our attention, calling us to follow them and submit to their stories. Lent is the Jesus drum, calling us back into the left-right-left of God's story.

Ordinary Time refers to the days between the Feast of the Epiphany and Ash Wednesday, as well as the “ordinal" (numbered) weeks of Pentecost after Trinity Sunday.

By Chris+ Myers | | Celebrate, Spiritual Growth | Advent, Anglicanism, Church Calendar, Church year, Text
Advent is a season for such holy hunger. Advent, this time when we as the Church inhabit Christ's first coming as a way to look forward to his second, names that hunger and in some sense gives us a taste of what it might feel like to be truly satisfied.

The one who could have called legions of angels to vanquish the legions of Rome, but who instead offered himself up by turning the other cheek, becoming in his death the truly meek one who would inherit the earth.
