Great and marvelous are your deeds, Lord God Almighty. Just and true are your
ways, King of the nations.
Greetings from the Vestry!
On Saturday there is a rather big event happening here in the. It’s the royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. A you a royalist? A hopeless romantic? Are you just the kind of person who will do anything for a party. Maybe it’ll all pass you by and you really won’t be able to see what all the fuss is about.There is a huge TV audience expected. If you live in America you can visit one of 200 cinemas that will. Be showing the wedding live.
Money will be spent, food eaten, drink consumed and it promises to be one huge party, but ……….. What does this have to do with Church and God? It’s a Royal thing. Our monarchy has been around for a long time, Kings, Queens, Princes’ and Princess’ have come and gone and the monarch is still ongoing. The thing is the Christian faith speaks of a King and a Kingdom that will outlast all kingdoms and empires. The Christian faith speaks of the King of the Nations and the King of Kings. The number one king if you like.
The thing is, the King we worship didn’t gain his kingdom by force or by power but by weakness and by serving. By living a life of perfection and giving his life as a ransom
he brings in his Kingdom that will have no end. The great thing about this king is that far from being distant and remote like our royalty we can know him and have a relationship with him AND his Kingdom will go on into eternity.
Now that is something worth celebrating. If you want to find out more about the Christian faith and why we celebrate feel free to come along on a Sunday and make yourself at home.
We’d love to see you.
