This spiritually enriching resource helps pastors, and other worship leaders and Christian educators understand and interpret for all ages the seasons, symbols, colors, and traditions of the Christian Year. Focusing on the various seasons and our Sunday experience, Delia Halverson suggests opportunities for teaching and celebrating these special times in the life of the church. For each season and special day, she suggests meaningful and easy-to-do teaching and celebrating activities for all learning styles. Included are monologues of special characters, help in developing your own liturgies, focus centers for use in the classroom and in worship, and references to particular hymns and unique ways to use them. This book also includes an added bonus: four appendices of definitions that you can use in bulletins or newsletters to explain aspects of the worship service, Christian traditions, and special days; a list of the symbols and colors of each Christian season and their meaning; a Hanging of the Greens service that can be adapted to your own liturgy; and instructions for setting up a Way of the Cross meditation and reflection journey.
