A conversation around how is Christ our King, what is helpful about that and what is unhelpful?
Show Notes

John has a conversation around four questions

  • What is kingship?
  • What images or words of Christ’s kingship come to mind?
  • What is unhelpful about Christ the King?
  • What does Christ the King offer us?

Christ the King Sunday reminds us that our primary allegiance is to Christ, not the church; not to our country; not to our tikanga. And yet Christ the king too often has been used as a support to our real primary allegiance – one or all of the above.

If Christ’s kingship was first, what would that look like?

How does Christ the king help us respond to some of the big issues of our time, including climate change, nationalism and white supremacy?
