From Pastor Paul

Teach us to number our days that we may apply our hearts to wisdom.  (Psalm 90:12)

 During June, we return to the part of the church calendar known as “ordinary time.”  We don’t call it “ordinary” because it isn’t as exciting as, say, Easter.  The name refers to how we “number the days” of the season; the ordinal numbers that we use to identify “The Third Sunday after Epiphany” or “The Twenty-First Sunday after Pentecost.”

The Sundays of ordinary time fall between Epiphany and Lent and between Pentecost and Advent.  The gospel readings in ordinary time are about the ministry of Jesus: his teachings, his travels, and his miracles.

In June, we ponder parables about seeds and stories of miracles.  We hear Jesus say that “if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand” and talk about the true meaning of family.

The color assigned to these Sundays is green.  It should make you think of new life and growth, because these are the Sundays when we learn how to grow and mature as people of faith.

Look for ways make the days of summer as extraordinary as possible.  Try starting each day by thanking God for five ordinary, everyday things. If your days are falling into a routine, examine your daily habits to see if it’s time to explore some change.

It is my prayer in ordinary time that each of us will grow in our faith and in our sense of what is possible for us as individuals and as a community.

Your brother in Christ,

Pr. Paul
