Scripture includes: Romans 8:26-39
Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “God is For Us”
In the darkest nights of our souls, we are often without words. The Apostle Paul told the Romans – and us – that thankfully, the Holy Spirit can take our wordless prayers and groan on our behalf. When we feel abandoned, Paul tells us God is working for us, not against us. When we feel separated from God, Paul tells us there is nothing that could possibly keep God from us. Even in the hardest seasons, Jesus chose to live and die for us, and God is with us every step of the way.
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. On the first Sunday of each month, we celebrate communion, and the liturgical color changes to white to recognize the holiness and majesty of Christ.
