As we come to the end of the season of Lent, our focus finishes with Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. For the Sundays of Lent, we have studied together portraits of Jesus offered to us from the gospels of Mark and John. These portraits have highlighted different aspects or revelations of Jesus. We believe that in Jesus, God reveals what it means to be truly and fully human, so we believe that these portraits reveal different aspects of our lives before God. As we learn who Jesus is in this walk to the cross, we discover who we are called to be in our lives.
Our final portrait is "Jesus: The Peaceful King." Our country no longer understands the power of kingship. We threw off the rule of a King when our country was formed, and for better and for worse, we’ve lived with the consequences. What is a King? What difference does it make to have a King? We’re not going to argue for going back to Kingship in the U.S., that would be silly, but if we join the hosts in proclaiming Christ as King, we should understand what we are embracing. If you want to know more about the Christian faith, its meaning and purpose, join us. We worship on Sunday mornings at 10:30. Parkside is the place where you belong!
