Aug 19, 2019: The Christian Year is a Gift

Robert E. Webber

What we are experiencing in the recovery of the church year is not something new or gimmicky. The church year is a gift to the church given by the Holy Spirit as a way of enriching our relationship to Jesus Christ—of restoring a sacred sense of time to our worship. It has withstood the test of time and demonstrated by its staying power that it is worthy of our adoption today.
