Eleventh Sunday after Pentecost
Scripture includes: 1 Kings 19:4-8
Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Never Underestimate the Spiritual Power of a Nap & a Snack”
We are a busy, overworked culture. We are always looking for the next thing we *have* to do. But Elijah’s encounter with God reminds us that sometimes burnout is best cured by good rest, good food, and intentional work toward wholeness with good help. If life has broken you with depression, loneliness, or hopelessness, God says to us: stop, rest, get the help you need.
This is the season after Pentecost in the Christian year. Having celebrated the “birthday of the church” through the giving of the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost, we enter the Season after Pentecost for 24 weeks, to celebrate the existence of the church and recall her mission in the world. The liturgical color for the season is green, symbolic of the church’s growth and mission.
