The Rhythm of Ordinary Life

May 31 to Aug 16, 2009

During the summer, the rhythm of the Lectionary focuses on these weeks called ordinary weeks. In the busyness of western life we need these weeks to enjoy life, enjoy God, enjoy community, and rest. And this rhythm of life is built into the church calendar. What does it look like to be faithful and endure and do the small things well? Join us as we start a dialogue about the rhythm of ordinary life.
