Reign of Christ – Year C

Jeremiah 23:1-6; Canticle 19: The Song of Zachariah; Colossians 1:11-20; Luke 23:33-43

Rev. Dr. Tim Connor

Jesus’ journey from Galilee arrives at its destination – the cross. It has been a strange journey, marked by sacrifice rather than the success that we usually celebrate. In the midst of suffering and mockery Jesus offers forgiveness, reconciliation and the possibility of a new beginning. He promises joy, the opportunity to be as fully human as we were meant to be, living without the burdens of fear and guilt.
