Christ the King Sunday Sermon Resources

Christ the King Sunday Sermon Resources

"Christ the King Sunday focuses our worship on the cosmic character of Christ’s reign over the world. It is a proclamation to all that everything in creation and culture must submit to Christ and an invitation to actively and joyfully submit to his rule. The day is celebrated widely in some traditions and is normally scheduled on the last Sunday before Advent. It, therefore, serves as a transitional Sunday leading directly into Advent, the Christmas cycle, and the new Christian year.

His work examines America’s relationship to wealth and the moral compromises that come from our obsession with it. Especially when it comes to ideas of equality, Giridharadas says, “there’s a chasm between the core of the American self-image and the reality of who we are.”
