Ordinary

This Sunday the Christian calendar entered “ordinary time.” Not the great joy or anticipation of Advent or the intense personal reflection of Lent or the celebration of all the layers of meaning to resurrection at Easter; just ordinary time. This is a long segment of the year, so we really must get plenty accomplished. I also think it’s neat that we launched with Mark’s relating Jesus’ little seed stories. Plant some seeds and watch them grow.

That’s what must be happening in ordinary time. It’s the long haul between seedtime and harvest. Who knows what will come up? Will there be enough rain? All the unknowns of any crop or garden. And what do we get at the end of ordinary time? Hopefully we get another bushel or sack or handful of seeds and the question is put to us again…what will we do with these seeds?
