Minute for Mission: 1001 New Worshiping Communities

Today is the day the liturgical calendar turns green. Ordinary Time … the long expanse of days without festival or celebration. It’s as if all that fire of Pentecost has burned out overnight and the Holy Winds have blown right out to sea. Yesterday was a great and mysterious day, but it’s time to get back to work and on with life as we’ve known it. Blow out the birthday candles. The Church is another year older, feeling her age in her joints and in her responsibilities. So, let’s get on with it.
