What kind of posts are we looking for, you may ask?

  • Posts related to our upcoming issue’s theme - generally aligned with the liturgical seasons

  • Any posts related to the Christian liturgical year! General reflections, recipes, history, personal celebration, community celebration, art…it can be as simple or complicated as you like.

  • Posts about particular liturgical feasts, seasons, etc.

  • Reflections on the seasonal lectionary

  • Questions about liturgical living! If you’re in a space where you’re dipping your toes into the Church year and are wrestling with it, feel free to share your questions & reflections. We’re not building an encyclopedia - we’re building a community of support!

  • Your post or article does not have to be on Substack! We can link to your articles published on other platforms.

  • We’ll just be posting links to your posts; your writing will remain on your own platform

Signs + Seasons is an ecumenical guild - our contributors span various Christian traditions. You will probably encounter theologies & approaches that might differ from your own, but all with a shared interest in, and curiosity for, liturgical living.

This is why our emblem is the pomegranate - often used historically as a symbol of the Church, the pomegranate’s many seeds form one unified fruit.
