Spirituality In Season

We are used to making Lent a special time for spiritual renewal, but the whole of the liturgical year offers an endless resource for growth in faith and understanding. Spirituality in Season explores the treasures that Christian tradition has accumulated over centuries and suggests new and creative-ways of drawing on these riches in ways that nurture both individual experience and the worshipping life of the church.
All of human life is reflected in the Christian year – the drama of its joys and sorrows, the times of waiting, the long stretches of uneventful ordinariness. This book aims to unlock the great potential of the seasons, both for those who plan and lead worship, and for those who use the church’s year as a resource for their own and others’ spiritual growth. Each chapter draws out the distinctive spiritual ‘mood’ of a particular season and offers:
-An overview of the season, its major themes and markers for the journey
-An exploration of seasonal liturgies, the lectionary readings and other resources
-Insights from writers from the Christian tradition and from literature
-Creative ideas for seasonal worship
-Practical tools for spiritual exploration.
Spirituality, liturgy and theology are often disconnected in contemporary Christian practice. Spirituality in Season offers a coherent vision for worship and personal spiritual growth that reconnects these great gifts at our disposal.
