While it might sound rather regular, Sundays are the most important thing that we celebrate. They are a regular time for us to gather together and remember who we are and whose we are. It is a time for us to press pause on the business and noise of life, quiet our spirits and listen for God’s voice and pay attention for God’s presence. It is a regular reminder that none of us are alone. They are a time and place for us to reset our life compass towards the things that really matter – the things that are good, beautiful, and true.
Many Christians celebrate the same holidays. These special days / seasons make up the “Christian calendar. At Edgewood we celebrate some you will recognize, but we add in some different ones as well. Holidays set a rhythm to the year and allow us to remember how life is changing and staying the same.
Holidays also orient us around our values and priorities. At Edgewood, remembering God’s faithfulness is important to us, so we make a big deal out of celebrating these special days.
Over time we hope the themes we celebrate will be cultivated in our lives, our community and God’s world.
