From the day after Trinity Sunday we move into Ordinary Time in the church calendar. A time when we use the colour green in our worship. I am not sure what is so ‘ordinary’ about green, particularly when it is seen in the beauty of the world around us. After some good bouts of heavy rain lately my garden is a wonderful display of greens of all shades!
And I am not sure what is so ‘ordinary’ about time. Each day that we have is a gift to take hold of and be thankful for.
Perhaps part of the message of Ordinary Time is that even when we are not celebrating any particularly special occasion, when we are simply going about our day to day lives, in the ‘ordinary’ we can still be astounded by God and God’s gracious provision to us.
Have an extraordinary week!
