This year, we are carving out of the unimaginatively named “Ordinary Time” of the church calendar, a 12-week period that we are calling Extraordinary Time! You are all invited to participate in extraordinary Time, in two different ways.
First, people will be asked to set up a little scene using a timepiece(s) depicting a saying about time, then photograph it, together with some sort of play-on-words caption about time. Completed photos can be emailed to Alison Sutcliffe as jpg files at her email address as listed in the directory or, if you prefer, you can organise to send them through Peta in the office.
Second, Michael would like to invite people to consider sharing with our community something extraordinary from your life in relation to time. This could be done as a brief reflection for the newsletter, or it could be read at community time, either by the person themselves or by Michael on their behalf. Think back on your life. Are there experiences you can identify which were, in some sense, “special moments of time”? It may not have seemed that way at the time but, with the benefit of hindsight, can now be seen as: an extraordinary moment, a moment when time stood still, an extraordinary period.
This week we have a special moment in time, shared by Peta Workman, called “A Hair Raising Moment in Time”.
