James continues his teaching about the Christian life by urging the faithful to seek the “wisdom from above” rather than human wisdom. This wisdom isn’t just intellectual, but makes itself known in the way we live together with others. In our other readings, Jeremiah speaks of his trust in God in the midst of suffering, and Jesus again calls his disciples to see themselves as servants, rather than rulers. Join us this Sunday to hear God’s word spoken anew, and to ponder how that word is addressed to us today.

Time after Pentecost: May 27, 2018 – November 25, 2018
On the church’s calendar, the time after Pentecost is not a season per se, but a period of reflection on the church’s life in light of the good news of God’s victory over sin, death, and hell at Easter and Pentecost. Stretching throughout much of the calendar year, the time after Pentecost calls us to growth in faith and maturity in discipleship, and often focuses on the practical implications of the gospel for daily living. The color for the time after Pentecost is green, recalling one of nature’s primary signs of growth and flourishing.
