“All Are Safely Gathered In” –Psalm 46, Colossians 1:11-20– Nov. 24, 2013

It is the end of the church year–the omega point, if you will, the culmination of the alphabet from alpha to omega, a to z. “I am the alpha and omega,” Christ says, the beginning and the end. The love of God which we know in Christ Jesus reigns over all creation, so we celebrate this Reign of Christ Sunday, …

Jesus doesn’t.” [seen on an outdoor church sign yesterday, theme of children’s moment today]. So, imagine my surprise and the smile that came over my face when I read this in a …
