~ Worshiping God ~
When we are not in the seasons of Advent, Christmas, Lent or Easter,
we are in the growth period of Ordinary Time -
marked by the living and hopeful color of Green.

While the 'seasons' of the church year focus upon one aspect of the presence
of God in our lives, Ordinary Time celebrates all aspects and occurs twice
in the Liturgical / Christian calendar. First during the time between Epiphany and Ash Wednesday, and then again between Pentecost and Advent.
This is why this Sunday we pick up where we left off, at Ordinary Sunday Nine.

May your Ordinary Time be EXTRA-ordinary!

while you listen to the words of Share the Well by Caedmon's Call

Inspired by the band's trip to India, Brazil and Ecuador, Share the Well explores universal Christian themes in a variety of geographies, with songs that look through the eyes of both visitor and resident. Major themes include God's
all-sufficient goodness, the need for people to share what they have with each other, and the inherent dignity of the oppressed.

Share the well, share with your brother; Share the well my friend
It takes a deeper well to love one another
Share the well my friend

Ji Ra Ji Ra, Ji Ra, De Ji Ra, De Ji Ji Ji

Do you think the water knows; Flowing down the mountain thaw
Finally to find repose; For any soul who cares to draw
Some kindred keepers of this Earth; On their way to join the flow
Are cast aside and left to thirst. Tell me now it is not so
All God's creatures share the water hole; The blessed day the monsoon comes
And in His image we are woven; Every likeness every one
From Kashmir to Karala; Under every banyan tree
Mothers for their children cry; With empty jar and bended knee
You know I've heard good people say;
There's nothing I can do; That's half a world away;
Well maybe you've got money; Maybe you've got time;
Maybe you've got the Living Well; That ain't ever running dry.

Victorian era Methodists to take communion without
