The Season after Pentecost is not actually a season with a single common focus, but is simply the weeks between the Day of Pentecost and the First Sunday of Advent.  It is often called "Ordinary Time."  These weeks hold both the slower pace and peaceful quality of summer months and the quicker pace and flurry of activity in the early fall.  These are our "ordinary" days, in which we live the Christian faith in our daily lives.

 

After Pentecost we settle into the growing season, nourishing the seeds planted at Easter and putting down roots in our faith.

 

    I am the vine, you are the branches.  Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit because,

    apart from me, you can do nothing.  You did not choose me, but I chose you.  And I appointed you

    to go and bear fruit, fruit that will last.   (John 15:5,16a)

 

How will I use the gift of this new day?

How will I notice the glory of creation?
