Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Abundant Gifts

Watching the beauty of the growth of plants all around us in the summer months, we cannot help but marvel at the gratuitous life that abounds all around us. The prophet Isaiah in our passage this week says this is how God’s word is as well, and Jesus echoes the sentiment in the parable of the sower. We get to be a part of the abundance God lavishes on this earth! May we scatter our seed as God scatters love on this earth.

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.
