|King of Kings|
And as we begin our planning for the Reign of Christ (or at least that Sunday) shall we pray?
God whose reign is one paradox after another:
Lamb or shepherd, of this world or not of this world, now and not yet...
As people of faith we wonder how best to speak of this kingdom.
As the year once more turns over, give us wisdom and vision.
Help us to see how your Reign is here, is being born, and is just over the horizon
so that we can be people of hope is a world too often given to cynicism and despair.
|or is Pilate the bad listener???|
But then again you could go into the last words of David. Because nothing says God's eternal Kingdom than the words of a dying man. Particularly one whose house is going to lose most of its glory (and kingdom) in the next generation.
|Isn't that really the key question?|
Then there are the almost requisite pieces of apocalyptic (seriously, what would Reign of Christ be without apocalyptic?). This year an option from Daniel and a bit of Revelation fill that void.
So how do you generally deal with the Reign of Christ? There is a discussion about the topic over on the RGBP Facebook page. And of course we can carry the discussion over in the comments on here.
