Scripture includes: 1 Samuel 15:34-16:13

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


The least likely of Jesse’s sons is called to the kingship in Israel. How often do we miss out on the gifts of others who we deem “less than” when God sees more than we could ever imagine in their lives? As we consider God’s call of shepherd boy David, where are our blind spots – where are we missing God’s actions within the lives of unlikely people? How can we see like God sees?

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.
