Twentieth Sunday after Pentecost
Scripture includes: Mark 10:17-31
Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “The Wrong Question”
When we have all we need physically, it can be easy to get stuck on questions of our own place in God’s eternal future. But life in the Kingdom of God, as Jesus reminds us, is about transformation and character change, especially as it relates to the care and love of others. Jesus says we are asking the wrong question – We should not be asking with the rich man in our passage “how do I inherit eternal life?” But instead we should be asking, “how do I live in the Kingdom of God?”
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.
