Happy New Year!

We are currently beginning another year.  No, I'm not talking about January 1st, I'm talking about the Christian Year.*  During the Christian Year, we have made our way through the extraordinary events of Jesus' life:

Birth :: Advent and Christmas
Life :: Epiphany and Lent
Death :: Holy Week
Resurrection :: Easter
Ascension & Pentecost

This is the Story of Jesus.

But the Christian Year does not stop there.  We are also taken through a journey of the birth and growth of the church:

Ordinary Time :: The Season After Pentecost

This is our story - the Story of the Church.

I invite you to join with me as we journey through the Christian Year - with devotion, art and music.  Each week of the 2013/2014 Christian Year, I will be posting blogvotions that follow the journey we are on as we walk through the Christian Year.  I hope you will join me.
