Often, [churches] operate with a secular calendar in mind, adjusting our schedules according to the academic calendar and the national calendar of holidays. . . . We need to refocus on our Christian heritage and the variety of events in Christ’s life and, in doing, restore a sacred sense of time to our worship.
