All Hail the King

As a child Christ the King Sunday meant it was time to finalize my Christmas list. As a teen I wondered why the church year ended with readings of the "angry" Christ concluding with his crucifixion. As an old man I have come to know what King means and why it matters.

"To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless."
G. K. Chesterton.
