The start of ordinary time that will take us up to Advent.
While ordinary time may seem less adorned than the times that run from Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent through to Easter, we enter it following Pentecost and the givng of God’s Spirit. We live out ordinary time by the power and strength of God’s Spirit.
So if the sound of ordinary time does not fill you with eager anticpation in the same way as Advent or Lent remember the words found in Romans 15:13
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
