Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Belonging Together”
On World Communion Sunday, we remember that we are not alone in our walk with God. We set aside time regularly to partake in a meal of remembrance, just like all our Christian brothers and sisters around the world. We are God’s people because Christ has provided a path for us to enter into the fold of God. As we read through our Exodus passage this week, a familiar passage – the Ten Commandments – we remember that God’s people are called to live differently, love fiercely, and to ask forgiveness when we’ve wronged God or one another. By keeping God’s commandments, we learn how to belong to God, how to belong together. And by remembering Christ’s teachings, his life, death, and resurrection, we remember just how much grace we’ve been given to bear those responsibilities.
