Order your life on the story of God
Anna Moseley Gissing, “Epiphany” in Jessica Snell, ed. Let Us Keep the Feast: Living the Church Year at Home. Epiphany and Lent. (2013). $5.95 [ORDER]
Modern life is fast-paced. Even worse, it’s often chaotic and confused. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Our days and our weeks are part of God’s created order; the sun setting and rising, the regular shift from work to rest: all of these form a rhythm for our lives, a rhythm that the church has historically observed through a set calendar of feasts and fasts. Maybe you’ve used an Advent calendar to count down the days till Christmas. Or you might have recently tried giving up something for Lent.
These practices are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the riches of the Christian church year. Why do we celebrate seasons in the church? How can we do it well? And what does it mean for you? Thousands of Christians wrestle with these questions, and others like them, every year – even every season. In this series of books, these questions are answered!
Written for Christians who want to embrace the historic traditions of the church, and whose desire is to bring them into their daily lives and homes, Let Us Keep the Feast seeks to provide explanation, guidance, and resources for richer, fuller practices for living the Church Year at home.
About This Volume: Epiphany and Lent are two of the least understood seasons in the church, leaving many Christians with questions how they should approach them personally and with a devotional spirit. In the Epiphany and Lent edition of Let Us Keep the Feast, you’ll find help for observing and celebrating both seasons: traditions new and old, suggested readings, recipes, and prayers.
