Ordinary Time

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!

Summer Sermon Series
On Sunday mornings from 6th July to 7th September we will work through the books of 1 and 2 Timothy, letters written to a young church leader and that contain guidance for both church leaders and for all believers today.  You are encouraged to read through these books in preparation for our learning together.

 

 Below are some photographs from our Community & Church Family Summer Festival;
