Sixth Sunday after Pentecost
Scripture includes: Ezekiel 2:1-5 and Mark 6:1-13
Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Stubbornness is not next to Godliness”
Hearing from the prophets is never a fun exercise, but it’s a necessary one. From the Hebrew prophets to Jesus himself, we have had a hard time hearing critiques from those asking us for more. We’re stubborn, and unfortunately, that’s not a trait conducive to growing faith.
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 the month, we celebrate communion, and the liturgical colors change to white to symbolize the purity and light of Christ.
