Each year, the staff of The Urban Ministry Institute (TUMI) embrace a common theme together around which we determine to organize our efforts and energies for the sake of our growth and maturity. During any given year, we integrate all of our devotions, preaching, worship liturgies, book readings, and spiritual exercises around our theme for the year. Through the theme, we seek to revolve all of our shared spiritual pursuits of the Lord, and all of the specific missional projects and events that we sponsor and host. This theme we call our "Sacred Roots Annual," a simple name we give to the overarching concept that will shape and give substance to our personal and corporate practice of the spiritual disciplines.
This annual emphasis is not based on the calendar year (i.e., from January to December), but the Christian Year (from the celebration of Advent around December to the Season after Pentecost at the end of the next year's November). We integrate our annual emphasis and focus with the celebrations and remembrances of the Church Year season. This provides us with both a common spirituality with Christians all over the world, as well as allows us to concentrate on those themes and issues unique to us here at TUMI. We deliberately find ways to connect our walk with the global journey that Christians are making through the celebrations of the Church Year; in doing this, we have found that our own unique journey and the shared journey of the Church Year can intersect and cross-pollinate one another, informing, enriching, and providing insight, the one to the other.
