(Thirty)-three in One

I recognise that there are going to be problems with telling the story of Jesus in just one liturgical year, and we try and do it through the traditional seasons of Advent, lent etc. but it has seemed to jar just a little bit this year with Easter followed closely by the transferred Feast of the Annunciation, and then next month we have Ascension, Pentecost, Trinity and Corpus Christi followed by the commemoration of the Visitation of Mary to Elizabeth. Backwards and forwards, backwards and forwards, until the whole story necomes a melange of infancy, boyhood, ministry, death and resurrection, and then feet sticking out of a cloud as he floats upwards into the heavens (not literally, of course, I know that!).

I wonder if it would help if we made the telling of the story spread over 3 years like our Lectionary readings? Now there's a thought.
