Christ the King Sunday (Lectionary 34)
November 22, 2009
Grace to you and peace, from him who is and who was and who is to come. Amen.
Love. Freedom. Kingdom.
If I were to read those words with a dramatic voice,
they almost sound like the tag-line for a summer blockbuster movie
about a fictional kingdom in the late medieval era.
You know, one of those gazillion dollar epic dramas,
with amazing scenery and elaborate costumes,
extremely dramatic music and actors who all have British accents, and, of course,
several drawn-out, bloody, and gory battle scenes.
