Reflections on Faith and Community

Dear friends,

On this page, you will find weekly reflections on life and faith. My hope is that, in some way, they will prove helpful to you in your daily living. You can also find them on the church's YouTube Channel in the "Weekly Word" playlist. May God bless you on the spiritual journey.

Jesus the King

There was also an inscription over him, “This is the King of the Jews.” (Luke 23:38)

This coming Sunday is the final Sunday in the church year. It will be followed by the season of Advent, which kicks off the beginning of a new church year. We start the year off with the expectation of the birth of Jesus, and we finish it with the acknowledgment that Jesus is, in fact, the King. He is the King of our faith, the King of our hearts, and the King of our souls. Jesus the King

As we come together for worship this Sunday, we will read one of the final stories of Jesus’ life as accounted for in Luke. We are going to spend some time together reflecting on what Jesus taught about the kingdom of God and how it affects us. We are different people than we would have been because of this Jesus. We think differently about this world because of this Jesus. We are challenged to love other people, help other people, listen to other people, embrace other people, identify with other people, in ways we might never have otherwise, all because of this one life, this one teacher, this one person named Jesus. Jesus the King.

Spend some time this week thinking about how Jesus has made a difference in your life. Who might you have been had you never learned about this one life that changed everything? What kind of person would you be? See you Sunday!
