Twenty-fourth Sunday after Pentecost
Scripture includes: Joshua 24:1-3a, 14-25
Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Renewing Our Commitment”
In one week, we will renew our commitment to our church on Commitment Sunday (November 19th). During this week, as we mull over our giving of ourselves and our resources through this church, I wonder if we might root ourselves again into both the “what an the “why” of our commitment. Joshua, leading the Hebrew people into the Promised Land, called on them to re-center their faith and recommit themselves to the One True God. Let us hear and renew that commitment today in our own context: “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
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.
