Twelfth Sunday after Pentecost
Scripture includes: Psalm 34:9-14 and Ephesians 5:15-20
Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “What’s Worship, Anyway?”
Worship of God should flow from a life of serving God. Praise should be nourished by a good and grateful life. Only then can we fully experience the powerful presence of the Holy One, releasing us from our fears and worries in this world. When praise and holiness are united, we move toward lives of wisdom, filled with the Spirit, and at peace in the midst of chaos.
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.
