Christ The King

Y’all, today is Christ the King Sunday. Today is the day when we proclaim with hope and with confidence that the whole earth will someday be Christ’s kingdom, that someday everything that divides people from people and even people from God will fall away. Today is the day when we celebrate the coming fulfillment of all that we hope for, all that we dream for, all that we trust in, through Christ Jesus! Amen.

I Will Praise You in This Storm

Y’all, today is Thanksgiving Sunday. Wherever you are in the journey of life, I hope you’ve got some reasons to give thanks and praise to God. But even if you’ve got some things, some barriers, getting in the way of your giving thanks and praise to God, even if it’s still raining for you, I hope God’s message delivered to the exiled Judeans through the prophet Jeremiah gives you reason to give thanks and praise to God, even amidst the barriers. Because whatEVER difficulties you’re facing in life, God is there to face them with you and to give you comfort and strength in their midst. And whatEVER difficulties you’re facing in life, even if you’ve been facing them for a long time with no relief at all, God STILL has plans for you, “plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope.”

That You May Live

Y’all, God didn’t provide the commandments – and God didn’t send the prophets…or Jesus – primarily to threaten us, to tell us what will happen if we mess up. No God has done everything God has been doing since the creation of humankind PRIMARILY for one reason, one reason stated very clearly through the prophet Amos, “that you may live.”
