Liturgical Meditations

liturgical meditations title

The liturgical calendar spans the life of Christ in a single year—from anticipation (Advent), to hope (Christmas), to transcendence (Epiphany), to lament (Lent), to redemption (Easter), to the birth of the church (Pentecost), and through long, numbered days (Ordinary Time) back to Advent. These video meditations rely on nature to tell the story of God, accompanied by scriptures traditional to each season. Note: All footage for these videos is original to FULLER studio; all narration is from faculty and staff, recorded in their native languages; and all titles are in the primary tongues of our community: English, Spanish, Mandarin, and Korean.
