Dec 6, 2021: Christian View of Time

Robert E. Webber

The Christian year is based on the events in the life of Christ that shape the Christian’s understanding of time. By observing the church year, time is aligned with the living, dying, rising, and coming of Christ. The Christian, in his or her view of time, makes a dramatic break with a secular view of time and begins to consciously meditate on the aspect of Christ’s life currently being celebrated by the church.
