February 2019 Letter from Sarah

SarahFarrimondthumbFebruary is not generally thought of as the most cheerful month of the year: with the festivities of Christmas in the past and spring and summer a long way off. It can be cold, grey and dark still: the weather mirroring the stormy events in the world.

It’s the same in the church year, when our celebrations of Jesus’ birth over Christmas and Epiphany finally end with the presentation of Christ (see Luke 2:22-38) often called ‘Candlemas’, when Jesus was taken to the Jerusalem Temple by Mary and Joseph for prayers of thanksgiving.

Up ahead is Easter and before that Lent and meanwhile nothing out of the ordinary is going on: indeed the Church calls this time between the major seasons ‘Ordinary Time’. Ordinary time in church tends to focus on the teaching of Jesus rather than the major events of his earthly life. And for us, ordinary time is properly a time to remember that God is present with us in the ordinary and mundane things of time. It’s a time to remember that God is as concerned with what happens to us and what we do Monday to Friday as what we do on a Sunday, with how we use our time and money and how we treat the people we come across. It’s a time also to remember that God isn’t just interested in the ordinary stuff of life: God is in it with us and alongside us, on special occasions or ordinary days, in calm or in storm.
