Between now and Thanksgiving, some six months from now, we will walk through the Christian understanding of "Ordinary Time." These are the in-between days between Pentecost and Advent. This is celebration of normal. This is wild of commemoration everyday. This is our chance to recognize God in our daily moments.
We're very good at setting aside celebrations of the special: birthdays, Christmas, Easter, anniversaries. But most of life -- as I say a lot, I guess -- is boring and ordinary. God's in the boring and ordinary, too. In fact, as much. Our next myriad weeks will allow us to consider God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit in stories of Scripture and in our own story. How is he being born in your life today? How is God calling you to see God made manifest? How is today calling for repentance and faithfulness? How is God being born again today? How is the Holy Spirit being unleashed in your life today?
Look for the extraordinary in your ordinary. Look for God in your day. Every day.
May your ordinary time be wondrous as you celebrate your faith.
Grace+Peace, Pastor Joel
