Figuring Out the Festivals

What Festivals Do Christians Celebrate?

Easter, Christmas, Lent and Halloween are calendar observances that both Christians and non-Christians celebrate. There is, however, disagreement about the problems presented by each of their histories, practices and associations. Which ones can we agree to disagree about, and where do we have the freedom to allow one another to follow our consciences? Adam Hellyer and Shaun Brauteseth explore these questions and more in the latest session of #BeEquipped.

This clip forms part of the #BeEquipped series – conversations around contemporary issues facing the church. You can find other videos from the series here.

Adam serves as an elder in Joshua Generation Church, South Africa. He is married to Vanessa, and they have two sons. Adam’s particular passions are worship and apologetics. Follow him on Facebook or Instagram for more.

Shaun played punk rock for a living, worked for a chicken company, and then wrote copy for adverts. Now he’s a full-time pastor leading a congregation in Oxygen Life Church in Gqeberha. He is married to Sammy Jane and they have three children. Follow him on Facebook for more.
