Well, folks, it's the green season again-Ordinary time in the rhythm of the church calendar cycle. At this very un-ordinary time in the life of our world, how comforting it is to see the familiar patterns of worship and liturgy continue to remind us that God is in charge, God is in control, and God is the final and best word in the midst of all the world's chaos.
In Ordinary time, we learn in our Gospels about the spread of the Good News through the disciples into a world that desperately needs it. In this green season, that's our challenge and privilege, too. We continue to seek new and innovative and wonderful ways to share the love of Jesus with all, in spite of sheltering in place, masks, and physical distancing. We continue to be committed to worship and faith expression with integrity, while maintaining a safe and healthful environment utilizing the protocols established by the CDC and White House Coronavirus Task Force as the ELCA.
It's the green season! In this very un-ordinary time in the life of our world, as Kermit would say, "It's not easy being green." And yet-the Holy spirit has new and exciting ways that we can be church together and Jesus for others for the sake of the world. Together, let's continue to share insights and ideas and fresh and new ways to be Christ to each other as we continue to be led by the Spirit to serve God and share Christ's love with all! Celebrate the ordinary! Celebrate being green!!! In Christ’s love, Pr. Jen+
