Scripture includes: Psalm 145:8-14 and Matthew 11:16-19, 25-30
Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Weighed Down”
In a world of triumphs and tragedies, we humans often realize just how frail we are. We are weighed down by the heaviness of this world, burdened with yokes we can’t bear on our own – the disappointments, struggles, pain, and loss that plague every one of us at one point or another. And yet Jesus offered his disciples a promise – not that life would be instantly simpler, but that we can choose to find peace in the midst of the weight of this world by taking on the yoke of Jesus – with Jesus right alongside us.
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.
