Last Sunday After Pentecost – Christ the King

Pilate asked Jesus, “So you are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. For this I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice.”

–John18.37

  • Have you found yourself more involved in politics this election year, or is politics something you try to stay away from?
  • What in your life gives you a sense of freedom? Is it in jeopardy?
  • Should Christianity be more about practice and values or more about beliefs and doctrine? Is it possible to separate them?
  • What is the truth that Jesus has come to testify? How would we know it?

It’s the Sunday we know as ‘Christ the King,’ but it’s the Sunday which marks the end of the season after the day of Pentecost. That long season following Pentecost as focused on building us up as a community of faith that hears the story of Jesus and endeavors to follow him here and now. We acknowledge, on this last Sunday, that while we work to build the community of faith we know as the church it’s really Jesus Christ we recognize not just as the center of that community but the one who defines us. If you’re in need of some new definitions come join us at Trinity Commons on Sunday at 6pm and remember what gives our lives purpose and direction. As always we’ll enjoy a delicious free supper thanks to our friends from St. Andrew’s. I hope to see you Sunday at 6pm.
