Liturgical Season – Birth/Initiation
Symbol – AnkhColor: Red
The Christian season of Lent falls on the First Afrikan liturgical calendar during the time we call “Birth/Initiation” (color: RED). During Lent Christians are reminded of the commitments they have made to God. They both reflect upon the quality of their spiritual life and, where necessary, recommit themselves to following the teachings of Yeshua. At First Afrikan Church we remember that we are all born spiritual beings, that we’ve come from eternity past and are in route to eternity future. Each moment requires of us the same level of purposefulness that any traveler who is intent on arriving at her or his destination possesses. We have been born into and are being instructed by our God, our ancestors and our elders on each step of the journey. We must therefore be conscious and stay “woke” in order to fulfill our divinely-given purpose in life.
The Lenten Season helps us to see that none of us travel alone and empty-handed. God has already provided all of the resources we need to fulfill our divinely-given purpose in life. Therefore, rather than searching for and attempting to attain what we do not have let’s strive to recognize the resources laying right at our feet and use them for God’s glory and for the liberation of God’s people.
African people have always been resourceful and resilient. Let us celebrate and re-member our collective journey and the ways that our God has always provided for our needs.
Explanation for our Liturgical Seasons
The word liturgical derives from the Greek word leitourgia. It is a combination of two Greek words: leit from laós (which means “people”) and ourgós from érgon (which means “work”). Liturgical means of or related to liturgy. Liturgy is the public work of the people done on behalf of the people. In church communities, liturgy is the order of public worship.
