The longest season of the Christian calendar, ‘Ordinary Time’ spans nearly half the year, arriving on the heels of Pentecost and concluding just prior to Advent. In 1937, the season we refer to as ‘Ordinary Time’ was known to most Methodists as “Kingdomtide.” Far from being ordinary, the Sundays following Pentecost are an excellent time to understand the significance of Jesus’ teachings.
This is a great time to read and study the social principles of the United Methodist Church. It is also a time to develop practices like prayer, study of Scripture, and hospitality. These habits of faith support our life together as the body of Christ.
