The Feast of Christ the King, November 22

November 9, 2015

Christ the King Sunday, last Sunday of the Christian year, is a time of great rejoicing for Christians to reaffirm our belief that Christ is, indeed, King of the universe and King of our lives. It also helps us prepare in a special way for Advent which focuses on the coming of the Kingdom of Christ.

Christ the King Sunday is a day to consider the role of Christ as King in our own lives. If Christ truly is to be King, He must reign in our minds, our wills, and our hearts. And He must reign in our bodies which should be used in ways to nourish our own sanctification and to be instruments of justice.

At Epworth Chapel on the Green we will mark the day in our 10:00 A.M. service of Holy Communion with special music which will include singing "Praise, My Soul, the King of Heaven" and also "All Creatures of Our God and King."

And we will pray the collect for the day:
Eternal Father, whose Son Jesus Christ ascended to the throne of heaven that he might rule over all things as Lord and King: keep the Church in the unity of the Spirit and in the bond of peace, and bring the whole created order to worship at his feet; who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
