Sacred Roots: The Sovereign Love of God
The Church Year outlines the biblical narrative of God’s saving work in Israel, Christ, and the Church. Sacred Roots is the term we employ for the Great Tradition of the Church, that deposit of faith and practice that shapes her life in the world. This year we will focus on the objective side of the biblical account, i.e., the Story of Scripture revealing the triune God’s saving work in history culminating in Christ’s atonement for the world. Below you will find the outline for our study of Sacred Roots: The Triune’s God Unfolding Drama, in the order it is taught. We commence this study after the celebration of Trinity Sunday.
