Scripture includes: 1 Kings 19:4-8

Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Never Underestimate the Spiritual Power of a Nap & a Snack”

We are a busy, overworked culture. We are always looking for the next thing we *have* to do. But Elijah’s encounter with God reminds us that sometimes burnout is best cured by good rest, good food, and intentional work toward wholeness with good help. If life has broken you with depression, loneliness, or hopelessness, God says to us: stop, rest, get the help you need.

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.

Scripture includes: Ephesians 4:1-16

Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Unity, not Uniformity

The Body of Christ, the church, should be so countercultural that the whims of this world’s chaos and division don’t rule our relationships. Instead, we’re called to a kind of unity that requires much of us – humility, gentleness, patience. And we’re called to celebrate the diversity among us. How can we sync this harmony in our own church, appreciating one another in new ways? How can we grow in faith together and not grow apart?

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 the month, we celebrate communion, and the liturgical colors change to white to symbolize the purity and light of Christ.

Scripture includes: Psalm 145:10-18 and John 6:1-21

Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Our Little, God’s Lot

Miracles like the multiplying of loaves and fishes or Jesus walking on water are well-known, but sometimes the real miracle is obscured. The real miracle isn’t that a human being can take a few loves of barley bread and two fish and feed thousands, but that this human being could represent a kind of hope and healing that leads so many who are in need to follow him wherever he goes. The real miracle isn’t wandering over water without sinking; it’s that this human being could inspire ordinary and worried disciples to step out in faith and lead the world toward a more meaningful existence with their ministries. Where are we seeing God’s miracles today? Where are we doubting them?

Scripture includes: Psalm 23

Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Abundant imagination

For too much of our lives we are concerned with how little we have, always seeking more. But the psalmist in our familiar psalm for this Sunday lives in a different plane from our existence. Instead of worrying, the psalmist lets go and trusts the shepherd. Instead of living as if there’s never enough, the psalmist choses to live in God’s abundance. Instead of losing hope, the psalmist rests in green pastures because there’s always hope for tomorrow. Maybe we could learn something from the abundant living of our psalmist today, imagining a new way of interacting with our world.
