Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe
November 26, 2017
How worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and divinity, and wisdom and strength and honor. To him belong glory and power for ever and ever. (Revelation 5:12; 1:6)
Often when we think of Christ with his title of “King” we think about the Last Judgment. At our celebration today we will indeed hear about Christ at the end-times. Yet the purpose of our gathering here is not to become fearful about what is to come, but rather to support one another in the tasks at hand, encouraged by our good and faithful Shepherd. This way, when judgment time comes, we can be ready and rejoice over the good deeds that have built up God’s kingdom.

Christ, King of All
On this, the final Sunday of the liturgical year, we celebrate the solemnity of Christ the King. By concluding the year with this feast we are proclaiming our faith that Jesus Christ is the one and only king over all seasons, all peoples, and all of creation.
At the end of time as we know it, Christ's work of restoring all things to unity and harmony with their Creator God will be completed.
This Sunday, when we claim Christ as both our Shepherd and our King, we recognize our own calling to participate in Christ's saving work by caring for those whom Jesus calls "the least ones" (Matthew 25:45).
Time Talent Treasure
““…whatever you did for one of the least of my brothers, you did for me” - MATTHEW 25:40
Most of us are generous when it’s convenient for us. We are generous when we have the time or the money. But, generosity is the opposite of that. It means giving of one’s time, money, compassion, forgiveness or mercy at a time that is not convenient to us; it is when that other person needs it.
As Christian stewards, we share the responsibility of making our church a true community of faith and a vibrant source of service to the larger community. That includes providing financial support for today’s needs as well as building a firm financial foundation for tomorrow. Planned giving provides an opportunity to continue the support of our faith even after our journey on earth has ended.
