The end of the year

Well the end of the liturgical year: Christ the King.
I like this chance to take stock before we're catapulted into the madness of Advent & Christmas. Before we get too carried away with babies in mangers, let's not forget that the one who is coming is Christ the Lord of all.
Readings are:

Jeremiah 23:1-6
Colossians 1:11-20
Luke 23:33-43

God will raise up a shepherd from the stock of David.
He is the image of the invisible God first-born of all creation.
The crucified one is recognised as king.

Plenty of food for thought there...
