I would like to begin by saying I am very grateful to the church leadership for the opportunity to take the past four Sundays off. The break was much needed and very appreciated. Thank you!
The last Sunday of the Liturgical year is called Christ the King Sunday or the Reign of Christ Sunday.
As I was thinking of this Sunday, particularly as the Reign of Christ, it struck me to think about what “reign” means. It isn’t a word we use often in any meaningful way these days. A monarch of any sort who “reigns” is someone from history. Canadians have a queen, Queen Elizabeth II, but her position has virtually no impact on us from one day to the next, one year to the next.
So what might be going on with a Sunday for the Reign of Christ? This week’s sermon spends some time thinking about what “reign” meant and what it might mean when we think of Christ’s reign.
I hope you find some value in the discussion and further hope it ends your Liturgical year well.
PS if you are wondering what is going on with the signature, today’s Liturgical colour is white.
