It seems to make sense that a Gospel-centered church like ours should have a Gospel-centered calendar! So these past few years we’ve put a lot of energy at Harvest into preparing our hearts for Easter, when we celebrate the very center of the Gospel in the death and resurrection of Jesus our Lord and savior.
