Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost
Click to View Bulletin
Scriptures include: Psalm 113 and 1 Timothy 2:1-7
Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “First of All, Pray.”
When Paul writes a letter to Timothy, he’s giving instruction to the younger leader as a mentor. His first instruction, the one “above all” or “first of all” is to pray. Prayer is the connection we have to God through Christ. Prayer has the capacity to change us into better people. As we face the winds of change, the struggles of this world, the worries in our own lives, prayer should be our first stop.
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.
