the christian calendar for the whole family.

kid lights

A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of joining my friend Zack in a breakout session on parenting at our church’s Grace360 conference. The theme of the conference was “the integrated life,” and Zack invited me to speak on the Christian calendar as an opportunity to live a more integrated family life. The session was videoed, and I’m excited to share it with you today.

In my 10 minute spiel (which begins around 46:40, though I highly recommend listening to the whole session!) you’ll hear me:

  • de-mystify some of the more ethereal elements of the Christian calendar
  • provide simple, practical ideas for engaging the seasons of the liturgical calendar as a family
  • recommend helpful resources

Speaking of resources, the handout I provided in this session is available to you here – just enter your email address and it will arrive in your inbox along with a few other surprises.

At the beginning of each season and on each holy day, I share specific ideas for observation with the whole family. Follow me on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram, or bookmark the blog so that you don’t miss anything!

Do you have ideas for observing the Christian calendar as a family? I’d love to hear them! Share your thoughts in the comments or on Facebook.
