Scripture includes: 1 Samuel 8:4-20; 11:14-15

Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “God Responds


Israel is at a crossroads and they ask their prophet for a king. God’s response reminds them that this trading of one system of government for another comes with a cost, but more than that, this response reminds Samuel and Israel of their relationship to God in the midst of whatever form of government they have. How is God reminding us of our relationship to God in our own season of governmental change of our primary allegiances? How can we live into the unexpected ways God wants us to live in the midst of the world as it is?

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.

Summer Sermon Series: God is at Work-Expect the Unexpected. This Summer, we are exploring stories from the Hebrew Bible in 1 & 2 Samuel and 1 Kings. In re-reading these biblical narratives of Samuel, David, and Solomon who find themselves in God’s plan in unexpected ways, may we find our own unexpected places in God’s narrative for our lives.
