Aug 5, 2019: Which Calendar? Spiritual vs. Secular Events

Robert E. Webber

By not following the Christian calendar we have come to adopt secular guidelines for our spiritual time. Christ has again become lost in our celebration of time, not because of too many saints’ days and feasts, but because of our celebration in worship of too many other days—national holidays like Independence Day and special events like Mother’s Day.
