The Election is Over: Long Live the King!

The Colossian Forum offers a very important reminder:

"On the evening of the election, as polls were closing and first returns would begin to stream in, I was amazed: here were 200 parishioners at church on election night, eager to learn about ecclesiology, baptism, and the Lord’s Supper. What kind of place is this?, I asked myself. 

Rob then stood up to introduce me, but first began with this announcement: “I know it’s election night, and I have some very important news that you’ll all be interested to hear: Jesus is still the risen King!” Brilliant. And true. And just the kind of centering confession the body of Christ needs to hear in fractious times.
