Ordinary Time: A conversation evening with Venn Foundation

Venn Foundation is to host a conversation evening at Blueprint Church on the 21st of August 2019, about Ordinary Time.  Read about the event here:
How we measure time shapes our experience of it. To count seconds, minutes, and hours is different from attending to times and seasons. For centuries, the Church has recognised this distinction and measured time and seasons around the life of Christ. To participate in the season of Ordinary Time is to experience this reorientation towards Christ.
 
Ordinary Time is the longest season in the liturgical Church calendar. Whereas the seasons of Advent, Christmas, Lent, and Easter focus on the dramatic moments of Jesus’ life (his birth, death, resurrection, and ascension), Ordinary Time attends to Jesus’ teaching and ministry. It is a time to allow Christ to shape, colour, and stain every aspect of our lives—even the mundane, even the ordinary. In a culture obsessed with time-keeping, time-saving, spending-time, wasting time, and killing time, Ordinary Time is an opportunity to imagine time differently and a challenge to live differently.
Join us for a Venn Conversation Evening at Blueprint Church on Wednesday, 21 August as we explore the contemporary relevance of this ancient practice and ask, how might we enter into Ordinary Time well this year?

We’d love to see you there.
