Seasons of the Christian Church:We are in the season of Eastertide
We are in the season of Eastetide in the Christian Church.
EASTERTIDE-Seven(7) Sundays beginning with Easter to the Sunday before Pentecost.
Background: This is the oldest season of the church, proclaiming the power of Christ's Glorious resurrection and our new day of worship in thanks for that act. In the fourth century the church established the fortieth day after Easter, always a Thursday, as THE DAY OF ASCENSION.
Theme: A risen Saviour with power over sin and death. A Saviour Who conquered what we could not so that a new day and a new way would be ours.
