The best music has a beat—a regular rhythm of sound and silence—and we are acutely aware when a song lacks a good beat. The stories that move us have action that rises and falls, taking us somewhere and back again.
The ancient church calendar taps into this truth, and helps us to orient to a narrative larger than ourselves. In our community, we follow the church calendar of seasons and holidays and each week our pastors teach on one of the four passages found in the Revised Common Lectionary which follows the flow of the calendar.
This site is designed to help you to extend that rhythm throughout the week by providing a simple way to access and engage with the texts. If you have questions, send me a note.
