The King and Kingdom

Labor Day Weekend is here!  Every year this marks the end of summer rhythms and the beginning of the school year and the onset of fall.  I know – many of you are already engaged in school, classes, sports, etc, yet this holiday weekend always highlights a new season for me.

For the next two weeks, I am stepping back from our series on the Creeds and Confessions to focus on King and Kingdom: The Kingdom of God Level 400! (Sept 2nd) and My Experience with God and the Wind and the Waves (Sept 9th) for our pancake breakfast, fall kickoff, outdoor worship service.  We will finish out our Creeds and Confessions series with the Canons of Dordt and the Heidelberg Catechism on September 16th and 23rd.

So what is the Kingdom of God?  And who is the King?  Is the Kingdom of God literal or figurative?  Is it something that is real now or will it be realized sometime in the future?  And why does this even matter?  Does King and Kingdom actually affect my life today?

Good questions for a Sunday morning coming soon.  Give thanks for the gift of the summer season and all its blessings – it will be back again next year.  Here are some pictures of some local summer beauty – The Flatirons (by Woody Green), Royal Arch in Chataqua, Nymph Lake and Ouzel Falls in Rocky Mountain National Park.

See you Sunday,
