“Ordinary” in the usual sense of the word? Not hardly. But we enter “ordinary time” this week, for those traditions that follow the liturgical calendar. Some might call it “Sundays after Pentecost,” but it’s the long (at least it seems long by the end) season in which we count Sundays after Pentecost and before Christ the King and Advent. Green, lots of green. It’s a time for spiritual growth and renewal, a deepening of our understanding of what it means to be a disciple. May this be our prayer for us and for our congregations.
