Sunday 24th November – Reign of Christ

LUKE 23:33-43
The Teacher spoke often
about the kingdom of God,
its good news
its secrets
its coming
its nearness
its nature
its hospitality
its preferential option for the poor,

The kingdom of God:
no towering mountain ash
but a mustard bush;
no throne
but a cross;
no mighty sword-wielder
but a hen gathering her brood;
not crumbs from under the table
but a loaf full and sustaining.

The kingdom is among you
yet waited for expectantly
and of this kingdom there will be no end.
