Scripture includes: Matthew 18:21-35
Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “The Measure of Forgiveness”
In our Gospel lesson for this week, Jesus addresses the issue of forgiveness among believers. Using a hyperbolic parable, we are told that forgiveness for followers of Jesus has no limit, and our grace should have the measure of God’s.
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.
