The traditional music for this liturgical celebration tends to fit the celebratory mood, but the Scriptures always point us toward a very different sort of king to honor. Likewise the flow of the liturgical year moves us quickly and paradoxically from a celebration of honor, royalty, and majesty to a period of waiting for a scandalous, humble birth.
Where are you in the liturgical year and your preaching? How are you addressing Reign of Christ/Christ the King? Or are you on something completely different? (I'm in the Narrative Lectionary and a week off in that to boot.) Join us for a party in the comments. I'm guessing I'm not the only one on this side of the ponds with turkey leftovers to share. No pie left though. Pies didn't even make it to Friday in our house. I think it had something to do with the homemade bourbon whipped cream that topped them. (OH. MY. GOSH. It was good.)
That said, there are plenty of sermon and worship goodies to share around the party, though, so regulars and lurkers (one of you who I met last week, especially!!!), come on in and join us. Let's get this party started!
