It might seem strange to be talking about the last Sunday of the year when we aren’t even in December yet but . . . it is the last Sunday of the church year, the liturgical year. Next Sunday we begin a new church year with Advent.
The last Sunday of the year is called the Reign of Christ Sunday or Christ the King Sunday, it depends on your tradition, and it is an opportunity for us to reflect on the reality of Christ the King. This reflection would be much easier for most of us if the evidence of Christ’s kingship was more obvious. We look here and there for what we think would demonstrate this reign and often we don’t see it. The problem is, we see what we are expecting to see and in a sense, a very real sense, we create what we see. If we have a particular sense of what this reign looks like, we can all too easily miss other signs of its presence.
This Sunday’s sermon is all about what Christ’s Reign looks like now and how and where we can see it.
There is only one sermon this Sunday as St. Mark’s had a “Hanging of the Greens” service which didn’t have any preaching in it.
