June 2, 2014: Telling the Story Forms Faith

Robert E. Webber

Pentecost Sunday ends the extraordinary season that began on the first Sunday of Advent. In approximately six months the church has been carried through all the saving events of God—his incarnation, manifestation to the world, life, death, resurrection, and ascension as well as the coming of the Holy Spirit. All these crucial events form faith and the spiritual life. . . . In a clear, directed, and evangelical practice of the Christian year, there is no missing of the point.
