Rites of Passage

How do Christians celebrate big life events?

 

What are the big ‘milestones’ you’ve experienced in your life? Maybe you can remember the first day you went to school. Maybe it was a time you moved to a new place to live. Maybe you’ve even moved country.

Life is full of these big moments that mark a new beginning and often change us as people. Whatever people's beliefs are, they usually celebrate the biggest moments in life's journey. These celebrations are called 'rites of passage'.

For Christians, they include birth, deciding to become a Christian, getting married and death. Watch this video to learn more about Christian rites of passage.
