Scripture includes: Psalm 119:33-40 and Matthew 18:15-20
Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “The Spirit of Togetherness”
In our Gospel lesson, we find ourselves in a section of a chapter dedicated to Jesus’s teachings about how people who follow him ought to relate to one another. These injunctions to believers are meant to draw people together in the name of Christ, but in different and specific ways. Today’s passage is one that has been interpreted in many ways over the centuries. Let’s revisit what it might mean for us today.
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.
