Why do we celebrate seasons in the church? How can we do it well? And what does it mean for you?
Thousands of Christians wrestle with these questions, and others like them, every year — even every season. In this series of books, these questions are answered!
Written for Christians who want to embrace the historic traditions of the church, and whose desire is to bring them into their daily lives and homes, Let Us Keep the Feast seeks to provide explanation, guidance, and resources for richer, fuller practices for living the Church Year at home.
