The Holy Days

Included below is material about all the principal Christian Seasons and Holy Days—Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Ash Wednesday, Lent, Easter and Pentecost. Through this content, we hope to provide a continually available resource for information and insights about how Christians observe a calendar of faith.

Entering the Season of Advent

In Advent, we enter a time of expectancy and anticipation, preparing ourselves for the coming Christ and the joy that arrives with Christmas.

Christmas: God with Us

The Astonishing Love of Christmas
It is a day, an event and the beginning of the Christian story. Here we celebrate the miracle of Jesus' birth, the power of the incarnation, and the joy that God is with us, always.

Ash Wednesday: Remember that you are dust
On this first day of Lent, we pause to take stock of ourselves and how we can draw closer to God. Here's a look at Ash Wednesday, what it means, and why it's such an important day for Christians.
