Nov24SunA sermon on Colossians 1 for Christ the King Sunday November 24, 2019
Christ is the image of God.
We can’t see God (because God is invisible)
but we can see Jesus…he’s a lot closer…
he was a man who walked, talked, ate,

Let us pray.
We walk by faith and not by sight trusting in your steadfast love along the journey. Small steps are faithful steps. Help us to keep putting one foot in front of the other and when your spirit leads, set us free to run with the wind. For it is in you, we live and move and have our being. Amen

In some ways the mind-boggling theology of the Trinity,
is as beyond human comprehension
as the violence and destruction that causes people to flee and seek refuge in foreign countries.
