St Augustine’s : June 2018

SarahFarrimondthumbI am writing this on a glorious May day: a particularly fine day for the royal wedding that is taking place today down in Windsor with wonderful sights and sounds; an occasion for rejoicing for so many. Then its back to ordinary life: work and school and the everyday activities that fill our days. In church its back to ordinary life as well as the church year moves on from the celebrations of the Easter season through the festival of Pentecost into what we call Ordinary Time. A time when we have no great celebrations, but just get on with the business of living out our faith in our everyday lives. And its also (and this isn’t a co-incidence) when we turn our attention from the great events of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection to what this means for us in church here in Scissett in 2018.

But the ordinary isn’t just the gaps between important things: it is important too. I am going to finish with a quotation from the writer Paula Gooder’s book ‘Everyday God’ (p.134)

‘Ordinariness lies right at the heart of our Christian faith. The God, whom we worship, is truly an everyday God who time and time again breaks out of the gilded palaces we create for him and meets us instead in our everyday life. This God cares more about people than about grandeur… we need to learn to be self-confidently ‘ordinary’ people who can celebrate God in the ordinary things of life, who can look for and encounter God in the everyday, who expect God to meet us while we wash up, get on the train or talk to our friends. We need to be alert to the possibility that this … might just provide us with a glimpse of glory
