Twenty-second Sundayafter Pentecost October 24 - 30, 2021 • Proper 25 According to God’s holy promise, the saints of Christ will dine at the marriage supper of the Lamb, a feast of love and communion with the risen Lord and Savior himself. The Feast of Christ the King, the last Sunday before Advent, anticipates the day when Christ will reign supreme, and the saints of God will never again leave the presence of their Lord.

As a Christ-centered statement, it points to the story of Jesus of Nazareth as the key to the entire self-consciousness of Christianity, and the key to understanding the hope of all twenty-first century disciples today” ( Sacred Roots ). THIS WEEK’S THEME Your Word Is Truth: Divine Narration: Biblical Theology, Luke 24.44-45
