Ninth Sunday after Pentecost
Scripture includes: Psalm 145:10-18 and John 6:1-21
Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Our Little, God’s Lot”
Miracles like the multiplying of loaves and fishes or Jesus walking on water are well-known, but sometimes the real miracle is obscured. The real miracle isn’t that a human being can take a few loves of barley bread and two fish and feed thousands, but that this human being could represent a kind of hope and healing that leads so many who are in need to follow him wherever he goes. The real miracle isn’t wandering over water without sinking; it’s that this human being could inspire ordinary and worried disciples to step out in faith and lead the world toward a more meaningful existence with their ministries. Where are we seeing God’s miracles today? Where are we doubting them?
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.
