Here is the link to the lectionary readings for this Sunday, known as "Christ the King Sunday," the last Sunday of the church year:
Here are questions for us to consider:
Ezekiel 34:11-16, 20-24 "I (the Lord) will seek the lost, and I will bring back the strayed, and I will bind up the injured, and I will strengthen the weak, but the fat and the strong I will destroy. I will feed them with justice." What type of sheep are we? What will a meal of justice taste like?
Psalm 100 As we think about what type of sheep we are and contemplate eating justice, it is good to remember: "For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; * and his faithfulness endures from age to age." If we are sheep that need God's healing mercy, God will provide what we need.
Ephesians 1:15-23 Consider this phrase: "...the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all." The church (however we understand it) is the fullness of Christ. What could that mean?
Matthew 25:31-46 Here is sheep/shepherd imagery similar to the passage from Ezekiel (and other parts of the Bible). It is familiar to many of us as a lesson on the centrality of human compassion, especially for the vulnerable. Try to read it with "new eyes"-- do you notice anything you have not noticed before?
Mother Bonnie is preaching this Sunday. Please pray for her as she prepares to speak and for all of us as we prepare to hear and respond to God's Word. For all those traveling for Thanksgiving, be safe and have fun!
