Passage: Luke 23:33-43
On Sunday, November 20 2022, Pender Lead Pastor Will White will preach on "Scoffers On a Hill" based on Luke 23:33-43.
The hymns were "Come Ye Thankful People, Come", "We Gather Together" and “Crown Him with Many Crowns" accompanied by piano, clarinet and flute. The Sanctuary Choir sang " Come Ye Thankful People" arranged by Jantz A. Black.
This text may seem out of sequence. Here we are on the last Sunday of the Christian year, and we are reading Holy Week texts? And where does “Reign of Christ” Sunday come from? Has someone done away with the traditional designation of Christ the King Sunday?
"Scoffers On a Hill" is the final sermon in the series titled Face to Face with Jesus. What would it be like to encounter Jesus face to face? That’s the question this series sets out to help us answer. We can’t know, of course, but we can get a glimpse of what happened to those who did meet Jesus in the Gospel texts we examine here.
