ORDINARY TIME (in a most extraordinary time): The season of the church year called "Ordinary Time" (but also known as the "Sundays after Pentecost") which lasts from Pentecost Day to Advent, the longest season of the Christian year, has begun. From ten thousand feet, the Christian year appears divided almost in half: about six months of holy seasons (Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Eastertide), and about six months of Ordinary Time. Like a pendulum swinging back and forth, or a pair of lungs breathing in and out, the church alternates between these two movements each year: high holidays and everyday life, the joys of celebration and the grunt work of growth.  

And during this longest season of the church year, this is the grunt work of growth: Every church member is an evangelist. The church is not a social club, but the place where Christians nurture their personal relationship with the risen Christ. Every member should be able to tell their story, and every member should have purposeful relationships with unbelievers. And every member's story should have a three-fold division: What it was like for me before Christ; the circumstances of my meeting Christ; and the effects, since that time, Christ has had on my life.
