We are nearing the end of the Church’s year (this year 20th November), and we finish with a great celebration: the last Sunday of the year is called “Christ the King”. It brings to a fitting conclusion the full cycle, which started with the earnest looking forward to the One long awaited, who would be the King of kings. Through the seasons we have followed his life, death, resurrection and ascension into heaven in glory. And we finish by celebrating and acknowledging that this King who came (Jesus), is also the one who is to come again, and is the King before whom every knee will bow.
Meanwhile, as we wait for the fulfillment of these things, we live in expectation, as Christ’s body, the church – part of that ongoing and growing group of people, past and present, who have acknowledged Jesus as Lord and Saviour.
