Upcoming Sunday Reflection

On Christ as King

 November 22-23, 2014

 

If you spend money on drugs, do I no longer need to feed you when you are hungry?

If you smell and are dirty, do I no longer need to let you live next door?

If you committed a crime, do I no longer need to think of you as human?

If you can’t afford your medicine, do I make you choose between poverty and health?

If your ways are different from mine, can I reject you and send you away?

 

Jesus is the Christ, the King of all. King of the Universe.

 

And how did Jesus show his sovereignty?

 

What did Jesus do for those who were hungry?

For the poor, the mentally ill,

The children, the elderly?

Did Jesus see prisoners as less than human, immigrants as without rights?
