Why Jesus really is the reason for the season!

It’s why the seasons of the Church calendar orbit around the life of Christ:

Advent: the return of Jesus to the world in final victory, because of…
Christmas: the birth of Jesus into the world, which leads to…
Epiphany: the manifestation of Jesus to the world, which leads to…
Lent: Jesus’ journey to the cross for the world, which leads to…
Easter: the resurrection of Jesus in the world, which leads to…
Ascension: the enthronement of Jesus over the world, which leads to…
Pentecost: Jesus sending his Spirit into the world, which leads to…
Kingdomtide: proclaiming the Good News of Jesus to the world, which leads to…
Advent: the return of Jesus to the world in final victory.

Remember, Advent is an opportunity to once again let the Church’s seasons, not the world’s, set the orbit of our lives—for the sake of the world God loves.

So it’s settled, then. Jesus really is the reason for the season.

All of them.
