Scripture includes: 1 Samuel 17:1-49

Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “God Leads

We’ve heard the story of David and Goliath many times if we’ve been around church long enough. It’s a staple Old Testament narrative from grade school on. And for years, I’ve always considered the actions of David the shepherd boy, yet I realize now that the true action was always God’s in this story. David simply brought faith into the Israelite camp. What does it mean to have the faith of David, trusting God when everything seems hopeless? It is God who leads in this story. Is it God who leads in our lives?

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. 

Summer Sermon Series: God is at Work-Expect the Unexpected. This Summer, we are exploring stories from the Hebrew Bible in 1 & 2 Samuel and 1 Kings. In re-reading these biblical narratives of Samuel, David, and Solomon who find themselves in God’s plan in unexpected ways, may we find our own unexpected places in God’s narrative for our lives.
