The Twenty-Sixth Sunday after Pentecost

18 November 2108

November begins with All Saints Day and ends in or near Advent, when we anticipate Christ's coming again.  So the readings for this Sunday tell of the final resurrection and the end time.  In the turmoil of hope, fear, and disbelief that these predictions provoke in us, Hebrews (10:11-25) sounds a note of confident trust.  Christ makes a way for us where there is no way, and we walk it confidently, our hearts and bodies washed in baptismal water, trusting the one who has promised.  The more we see the last day approaching, the more important it is to meet together to provoke one another to love.

Thanksgiving Service

4 p.m. in the afternoon followed by a potluck meal

 

Day of Thanksgiving

22 November 2018

The Thanksgiving readings (Joel 2:21-27) and (1 Timothy 2:1-7) reflect two of the strains that go into the celebration of a national day of thanksgiving:  gratitude for abundant harvest (Joel) and civic prayer for a peaceable common life (1 Timothy).  The core meaning of Thanksgiving for many of us---a home feast for extended family and friends---is not reflected in the readings; but it is reflected weekly in the church's meal of thanksgiving (eucharist).  What we wish for both these thanksgiving meals is that they will go deeper than celebration of one another and our own blessings, to recognize in our true Host one who wants everyone brought to the table.

Christ the King Sunday

25 November 2018

Even after Israel had experienced the vagries of kings, they still longed for a true king to set things right.  He would have the king's title of Anointed One (Messiah); he would be the "one like a human being" (Son of Man) given dominion in Daniel's vision.  Jesus is given these titles, even though he is nothing like an earthly king.  His authority comes from the truth to which he bears witness, and those who recognize the truth voluntarily listen to him.  We look forward to the day he is given dominion, knowing his victory will be the nonviolent victory of love.
