Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Don’t Get Too Comfortable”
Our Gospel lesson this week can feel jarring at first read, but it presents us with an interesting observation. Speaking of unity and division between humans is too simple. Following Jesus will bring both of these. Following Jesus calls us to unity in peace with our neighbors – friend and enemy alike. Following Jesus can also separate us when we are called to live into a very different kind of lifestyle than those around us. How can we understand how to live in the midst of this paradox?
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.
