Liturgical Arts - Year B

How does a weary world rejoice?” From the opening chapters of Luke’s Gospel, A Sanctified Art found a few answers: we acknowledge our weariness, we find joy in connection, we allow ourselves to be amazed, we sing stories of hope, we make room, we root ourselves in ritual, and most importantly, we trust our belovedness.
In the parallel birth stories of Jesus and John, joy arrives—despite trepidation, fear, or grief. In these stories, we find rhythms for rejoicing. As we move through our series, we hope to create space for acknowledging the weariness of our world while celebrating God’s closeness with great joy.
Some highlights:

  • The series sequentially follows the stories in Luke 1-3.
  • It includes some of the Hebrew scriptures from the RCL (Year B).
  • The bundle includes 12 resources (plus free supplements).
