Thirteenth Sunday after Pentecost
Scripture includes: Psalm 34:15-22 and Ephesians 6:10-20
Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Dressed for the Occasion”
In the letter to the church at Ephesus, we are told of some “strange armor” meant not to fight battles against our fellow humanity, but against the “powers and principalities” of this world. These darknesses and evils still exist around us, and our job as Christians isn’t to fight offensively.
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.
