Reign of Christ & Thanksgiving Sunday - Nov. 22
"We are painfully aware that public servants today continue to fall short of the ideals we set forth for them and even those they set forth for themselves, not to mention those of God's sacred just rule. They will continue to do so, but in claiming and celebrating the reign of Christ, we perpetuate the ideal of just rule and hold it up as a standard to which we all can aspire. Like the early Christians who proclaimed that Jesus, not Caesar, is Lord, we can proudly state, "Jesus is my public servant," and seek to follow his example of leadership, rather than the flawed human examples that surround us. We are all children of God, and in the ways we interact with others, we can work toward a just rule in which each of us is a true public servant."
