As Christians in the Anglican Tradition, we follow the Church Calendar in order to establish a life-rhythm whereby we regularly focus on various aspects of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and on the gift of the Holy Spirit. Doing so helps us better understand how all these aspects of the Christian Narrative intersect with our everyday lives.
As Anglicans who observe the Church Calendar, we now enter in to the Season of Lent. During Lent we focus on the sacrifice of Christ and his impending death and Resurrection. We focus on prayer, service, and alms giving.
