Sixth Sunday After Epiphany
Scripture includes: Deuteronomy 30:15-20 and Matthew 5:21-30
Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Exceeds Expectations.”
The “letter of the law” isn’t quite enough for Rabbi Jesus in our Gospel lesson this week. We are called to follow the “spirit of the law,” going above the minimum requirements and reaching for the heights of God’s love and concern for this world with our lives and actions. What will our effort be? “Meets requirements” or “Exceeds Expectations”?
Today is the Sixth Sunday After Epiphany in the Christian year. Epiphany (January 6) celebrates the manifestation of God in Jesus Christ. The Season of Epiphany continues this emphasis, calling attention to the words and deeds of Jesus’ earthly ministry. The liturgical color for the season is green, representing new life and growth.
