Universal Spirit

The Seasons of the Christian Year in the Company of Northrop Frye
  • By Don Collett
To a church that increasingly addresses itself to biblically illiterate people, to people who may have little or no church experience, and to those who simply call themselves spiritual-but-not-re�ligious, Don Collett�s look at the Christian year inspired by the work of the great Canadian schol�ar Northrop Frye offers a priceless gift. �Frye conceived of a world beyond the normal confines of Christian doctrine and theology,� writes Collett, �and then found a place for Chris�tian doctrine and theology to provide the hope this world needs.� This movement, says Collett, allows us to �begin conversations that seem wholly secular� � conversation that happen in �language� most familiar to people today, both inside and outside the church � �and arrive at the vocabulary of the spiritual life.� While the seasons of the Christian year � Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Easter, and Pente�cost � may seem arcane to many, Collett uses this method of structuring the year as a way to draw forth insights into what he calls the Universal Spirit, spiritual truths which may be applied in the course of a person�s everyday life. Says Collett, �These pieces will appeal to the person who desires to make sense of spiritual concepts and topics, and to the way both intersect with the challenging events of our times.�
