Fourteenth Sunday after Pentecost
Scripture includes: Psalm 15 and James 1:17-27
Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Who to Be / Who Not to Be”
Sometimes the best way to learn who to be in this world is to be very clear about who you’re not to be. In our passage for this week from the book of James, we learn a little about what Christians ought not to be right alongside what we should be. James reminds us that faith without works is dead, and he tells us which actions in our own lives build up our faith and love God/neighbor.
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.
