Erin and Danielle introduce themselves and their project—a consideration of how the liturgical seasons can come alongside us as Christians to provide a framework for both knowing more of God, ourselves, and parenting little ones.

Thanks so much for listening to the first episode of Sacred Season!

Opening Scripture: Psalm 19:4

Closing Scripture: Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

Original podcast music by Shannon Soderlund (who does, btw, have a WONDERFUL Christmas album that everyone should buy.)

Here are a few additional resources for learning about the liturgical calendar and incorporating it’s rhythms into your own life:

Sacred Ordinary Days Planners – Perfect for anyone who is brand new to or anyone looking to delve more deeply into the liturgical year! 

Sacred Seasons: A Perpetual Liturgical Wall Calendar – A beautiful seasonal calendar to help you and your family be mindful of the current liturgical season. 

Book of Common Prayer – The BCP is the Anglican prayer book. In it you’ll find seasonal scripture readings and prayers, as well as liturgies for morning and evening prayer, family prayer, and various church services with notes on how to incorporate the seasonal elements into each liturgy. Fun fact: the opening scripture of each of our podcasts is taken from the suggested seasonal opening readings in the BCP.
