The season of the church year is Easter. We know because last Sunday, Easter Day, began the great 50 days of the Easter season. But which of those 50 days is it now? What month is it? It’s hard to keep track.
“What Month Was Jesus Born In?” is a song we sing in Children’s Chapel. We usually talk about the seasons of the church year and practice the months of the calendar year before we sing it.
The seasons of the church year start with Advent, then Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Easter, Pentecost and Ordinary Time (which we also call the Green, Growing season). In Children’s Chapel, we sometime add another word for the season after Easter because it’s so fun to say: Whitsuntide! But in our church, Pentecost is the day the Holy Spirit came.
Greg makes a joke that it must be after six o’clock. That’s because he’s wearing a tuxedo, which is a fancy suit that is sometimes worn to dinners and dances at night. He was so tired of wearing sweat pants that he put on something spiffy for his Zoom meetings. But it goes to show: there are lots of ways to tell time.
