Last Sunday was The Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe. AKA the Feast of Christ the King or Christ the King Sunday. #baller
Having grown up Baptist, these special feasts are completely new to me. I bet a bunch of my Methodist friends are in the same boat!
So what is Christ the King Sunday all about? It celebrates the all embracing authority of Christ the King and Lord of all things. It is celebrated on the last Sunday before Advent.
Here's a little history about the feast.
That's pretty fascinating! According to my husband, theologian extraordinaire, The United Methodist Church adapted the feast around 1980.
I have been thinking for a couple years now that I need to be implementing more of these feast days into our lives. The end of the church year is the perfect time to start doing that.
This post actually came through my Facebook feed and I had never heard of it but it is so cool!
You mix up this pudding and then wait to bake it until Christmas! It looks really good and I thought about making it myself but the recipe calls for suet. I have no idea what that is. #itsbritish Plus it would be hard to make on Christmas since we travel home to be with family. BUT maybe it's something you can do!
Anyway, next Sunday is the first week of Advent. Advent is one of my favorite seasons in the church. The anticipation and waiting.... #loveit
