Saturday, October 13
This Sunday marks the beginning of Kingdomtide, a liturgical season generally observed by Protestants, especially Methodists and Presbyterians thanks to the ongoing influence of Martin Bucer, John Calvin, George Whitefield, and Charles Wesley.
The season extends from the end of Pentecost until the beginning of Advent. Worship services during Kingdomtide stress the extension and growth of God’s great Kingdom. Inevitably, this means that we look to both the majesty of our King and the high call of service within the Kingdom.
Thus, we are charged to go forth into this poor, fallen world with the light of the Gospel, shedding abroad charity to the poor, and bringing Good News to all men by graciously evangelizing and discipling all the nations of the earth.
