Scriptures include: Psalm 84:1-7 and Luke 19:1-10
Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Why, Church, I didn’t Recognize You!”
The beauty of being together in worship of our God can get overshadowed by the fears and concerns about the ever-changing nature of the institution itself. Church as we know it has gone through multiple reformations (about every 500 years), and we seem to be in the midst of yet another time of reform and change. But like Jesus, who invites himself over to Zacchaeus’s house, we ought to know that God’s among us in so many different ways, shapes, and forms – and calls us to follow, even when we least expect it.
Today is Reformation Sunday, which is celebrated on the last Sunday of October, commemorating the beginning of the Protestant Reformation. On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther posted his 95 theses to the door of the church in Wittenberg, Germany. The liturgical color of the day is red, which represents the Holy Spirit and the Martyrs of the Christian Church. Red is also the liturgical color for anniversaries and festival days of the churches.
