This last Sunday of the church year is Christ the King Sunday. The Gospel is the wondrous story of “The Good Thief” in Luke 23:33-43. A Christian spiritual teacher once said that “The thief on the left wanted to be taken down; the thief on the right wanted to be taken up.” Ups and downs in life are laid out with a humorous story of the seesaw with Pastor Nick and his wife, Gina.
This is the Thirteenth and Last Sunday in Kingdomtide.
There are thirteen weeks in this final quarter of this year’s “Seasons of Grace,” the liturgical year revised according to the cycle of The Bible Through the Seasons.
