Sunday the 14th June is the First Sunday after Trinity and today we enter the long stretch in the church calendar referred to as ordinary time! Of course, the times are never ordinary – particularly with racial unrest and global pandemic – but united as the body of Christ, we can help to make a difference against the ills in our world, to recognise and challenge injustice in His name.
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?
