A Sermon for November 22, 2015
Today is the final Sunday of the Christian year. Next week Advent begins, and with Advent, the new Christian year.
On this last Sunday of the Christian year, we celebrate Christ the King. . . .
When we think about Christ’s kingdom as we know it today, we notice pretty quickly that Christ’s kingdom must be totally different from any other kingdom that we have ever known.
We see in our gospel reading that Jesus’ kingdom is so different from “normal” kingdoms that Pilate could not make any sense of it. If the stakes were not so high, their conversation would be funny. . . . .(click on title to find out more)
