So, we’re half way through Ordinary time, the half a year that follows the excitement of Easter and Pentecost. There aren’t seemingly any great feasts to celebrate, no anticipation as with Lent before Easter or Advent before Christmas. Really, ordinary time? More like boring yawn time – wake me up when it’s Christmas and something is happening, alright?
