COMMUNITY OF FAITH
IN THE UNITED
In our Christian tradition, these are the Ordinary Days. The great feast days of the Christian Calendar, Christmas, Easter and Pentecost are over--the big events of the Christian journey: waiting, incarnation, suffering, death, resurrection and empowerment are over. Now, the work of Jesus begins. Ordinary days are not high holy days or feast days or spectacles with a roast after the show. Ordinary days are days when ordinary people do ordinary things. Ordinary days are Tuesdays in the garden pulling weeds, planting seeds, or lazy afternoons reading books, creating art, talking about climate change, working in the kitchen. Ordinary time is when we recognize God in our ordinary lives. Ordinary time is beautiful. These days holy isn't high and lifted up or deep in the cold of winter, or suffering; now the holy is playing. Now, the holy is teaching us to play.
Thank you for looking at our website. We are delighted to call

Mixed Precipitation Returns August 19
The sorceress Alcina, along with her ditzy sister Morgana, has been luring unwitting truckers to her diner truck stop where she turns them into animals to populate her roadside menagerie. But has she met her match in Bradamante, a young woman determined to free her lover, Ruddy, from Alcina’s sinister clutches?
In this one-of-a-kind romp directed and adapted by Mixed Precipitation founder Scotty Reynolds, Italian baroque opera meets the truck-driving country anthems of the 1960s and ’70s. Along with Handel’s arias and choruses, the cast sinks their teeth into the gritty country tunes of Dave Dudley, Red Simpson, George Jones, and Tammy Wynette with songs like “Six Days on the Road,” “Heartaches by the Number,” “We’re Gonna Hold On,” and “Diesel Smoke, Dangerous Curves.”
The play will be presented at Northeast UMC at 7 p.m. August 19. (Rain or Shine)
