[CWM] Twenty Fifth Sunday After Pentecost [2007-11-18]
Continuing my day's theme of "I should bring a camera more places," we had a lovely blue and green setup.
Tiffany was traveling, so Will was the worship leader.
Will: "It's the holidays, and it's gonna be okay. I think it's gonna be okay."
He said this Sunday is a weird Sunday 'cause is this Thanksgiving Sunday? is next Sunday Thanksgiving Sunday? He said that as the bulletin notes, it's the Twenty Fifth
Sunday After Pentecost, and that it's hard to get excited about that. He said he feels like this time of year we're "so done with ordinary time" that we're reaching for things to celebrate -- All Saints' Day, Reformation Sunday, Thanksgiving Sunday. He continued, "In some churches, next Sunday is 'Christ the King' Sunday -- as if we needed a special Sunday to celebrate patriarchy. Of course here at Cambridge Welcoming, next week we're celebrating 'Christ Miss Thing' Sunday."
[Later in the week, sangerin
posted about looking forward to Christ the King Sunday because of all the stuff going on in Australian politics. I thought this was a useful counterpoint. Personally I don't have a problem with the concept of Christ the King, since I interpret it as above and in contrast to earthly notions of kingship, though I recognize that sermons about it could easily glorify hierarchical structures of domination.
