Fifth Sunday of Easter
Facebook Live & YouTube Live
Scriptures include: Psalm 148 and Acts 11:1-18
Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Getting out of God’s Way”
In our Acts passage for this Sunday, Peter, who had always been an observant Jew, chose to listen to God and get out of the way of Gentile inclusion into the church. He even took up for his revelation to others. Where are we being asked to let go of our own preconceived notions and get out of the way of God’s kingdom work? How can we too share the story of how God has spoken to us about our changed viewpoints?
Today is the Fifth Sunday of Easter. Easter Sunday was the beginning of the season of Eastertide in the liturgical year. Eastertide is celebrated from Easter Sunday for fifty days, until the day of Pentecost, and focuses on the meaning of Christ’s resurrection. The liturgical color is white, symbolizing light, victory, and eternal life.
