Rev. Libby M. Grammer's Sermon will be
"Accepting Wisdom's Invitation"
Old Testament Lesson: Proverbs 9:1-6
Gospel Lesson: John 6:51-58
Wisdom is not a human trait, but one of God's many traits. The personified Woman Wisdom in Proverbs reminds us that when we accept an invitation to feast with God's wisdom, we are accepting an unconditional love spread as a feast. Similarly, we accept that same invitation when we enter a body of believers and partake of Communion, remembering Christ's lavish love poured out and his promise of a welcoming banquet table. Are we wise enough to accept these invitations?
