Fourth Sunday after Pentecost
Scripture includes: Psalm 107:1-3, 23-32 and Mark 4:35-41
Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a Sermon entitled “Don’t you care that we’re perishing??”
Fear is a real thing, a normal thing, a thing we humans feel. Jesus knows it, and we know it. And we can’t always handle what life throws at us when we’re tossed by wind and wave. But that’s when Jesus’s peace and power can calm the torrent for us, and we are reminded we don’t have to stay afraid. That peace Christ wields can be ours, too. What might this kind of faith look like for us today in our church?
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.
