Scriptures include: Psalm 82 and Luke 12:49-56

Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Don’t Get Too Comfortable”

Our Gospel lesson this week can feel jarring at first read, but it presents us with an interesting observation. Speaking of unity and division between humans is too simple. Following Jesus will bring both of these. Following Jesus calls us to unity in peace with our neighbors – friend and enemy alike. Following Jesus can also separate us when we are called to live into a very different kind of lifestyle than those around us. How can we understand how to live in the midst of this paradox?

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.

Scriptures include: Genesis 15:1-6 and Hebrews 11:1-3,8-16

Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Do You Trust Me?”

God is asking us: Do you trust me? Do you have faith to stay the course? Can you look beyond your current circumstances and believe something better is coming? Can you “see” the unseen with your faith, or is it easier to give in to pessimism and fear? Our spiritual ancestors are examples of the kind of faithfulness we need to embrace, even on our hardest days.

The liturgical color for the season is green, symbolic of the church’s growth and mission. On the first Sunday of each month, we celebrate communion, and the liturgical color changes to white to recognize the holiness and majesty of Christ.

Scriptures include: Psalm 49:1-12 and Luke 12:13-21

Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “The “Me” Problem”

Wealth. Money. Generosity. Jesus had lots to say about it. But more than anything, Jesus had lots to say about our *attitudes* towards these things. The rich man in the parable in our text this Sunday had a serious “me” problem. But following Jesus calls us away from selfish gain and toward our neighbors in need.

Scriptures include: Psalm 85 and Luke 11:1-13

Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Persistent Prayer”

Prayer is not optional for Christians, and Jesus teaches us how to pray in our Gospel lesson this week. Persistence in prayer means not giving up on a relationship to God, no matter what comes at us in life. Prayer keeps lines of communication open and invites God’s Spirit among us.
