This intergenerational service (i.e., the kids stay upstairs!) celebrates the final Sunday in the Church Calendar by looking back on the year that has past and looking forward to the year ahead in an interactive and informative walk through the Church Year.
Because this is a visual and interactive Sunday, there is no audio recording. If you were not able to join us on this Sunday, we encourage you to pray and reflect on this prayer about time, written by Stanley Hauerwas, which was prayed three times during this service.
"End of all our beginnings, Lord of time, who alone makes time a gift, remind us we are creatures with a beginning. We confess we often forget we are your timeful creatures. We fear the forgetfulness our death beckons. We are driven frantically to work, thinking we can ensure we will not be forgotten, to ensure our place in time. How silly we must look to you, ants building anthills to no purpose. Help us take joy and rest in your time, Eucharistic time, a time redeemed through Jesus' resurrection, that we can rest easy in our dying. You have given us all the time in the world. May we take pleasure in it. Amen."
