Tempus Fugit

Dr. Ben Witherington, Professor of New Testament Interpretation at Asbury Theological Seminary, writes about the Christian year in his latest blog post. What does this have to do with Advent? Plenty! The first Sunday in Advent also marks the beginning of a new Church year. Do we live with this view of time in mind? The ebb and the flow, the connectedness of the Church calendar? For most of us, the answer is probably “no”, but this Advent is a perfect time for all of us to reorient our thinking about time around Christ: his coming, his life, his death, his resurrection, and his coming again.
