Introduction for Sunday, November 26th

This Sunday is the final Sunday of the church year and the gospel is Jesus’ great story of judgment. In the end, the faithful are those who served Christ by ministering to those who are poor, hungry, naked, sick, or estranged. In the first reading God is the shepherd who seeks the lost, weak, and injured and feeds them with justice. We gather this day to celebrate the reign of Christ and his victory over death, yet we await the consummation of all things yet to come. Acknowledging Christ as our merciful ruler, we go forth that his reign may be known in our loving words and deeds.

Scripture (two (2) read Sunday morning)

Ezekiel 34:11-16, 20-24 God will shepherd Israel

Psalm 95:1-7a We are the people of God’s pasture and the sheep of God’s hand. (Ps. 95:7)

Ephesians 1:15-23 The reign of Christ

Matthew 25:31-46 The coming of the Son of Man; the separation of sheep and goats

Theme & Write Up for the Season of Pentecost Autumn/November

written by Matt Reece, Director of Music Ministries

Open our hearts, Open our eyes, Open our hands

As we approach the end of the Pentecost season, our worship theme is “Open our hearts, Open our eyes, Open our hands.” This theme will guide us in a journey of spiritual growth and interconnectedness. Rooted in the teachings of Christ and the imagery of the vineyard, we will explore the transformative power of opening ourselves to God and others, fostering spiritual relationships characterized by understanding, forgiveness, and compassion.

Through our worship, we will reflect on the metaphor of the vineyard, understanding ourselves as branches of the same vine tended by God. This imagery will remind us of our interconnectedness and shared dependence on God’s love and grace. As we open our hearts, we will cultivate a disposition of humility and non-judgment, recognizing that every individual is a unique creation of God. By opening our eyes, we will seek to perceive the world with Christ-like compassion, acknowledging the struggles and joys of those around us. As we open our hands, we will embrace the transformative power of forgiveness and extend kindness to others, nurturing the spiritual relationships that bind us in the shared journey of faith. In this season, we will strive to embody Christ’s teachings by becoming vessels of His love and grace, fostering unity and renewal within our faith community and beyond.

By embodying these principles, we will actively participate in the flourishing of God’s Kingdom here on Earth, creating an environment of love, compassion, and grace that extends far beyond the boundaries of our congregation.
