Christ the King

Today is the Solemnity of Christ The King. This means Advent is upon us. I love this image which I photographed off the cover of my church bulletin.

    Tis the Feast of Christ the King today! We had a grand mass at the Episcopal Church this AM...the incense was flying!

    Given today's resonance with my spirit I swear I would suck as an unbeliever.

    I don't know if I am a traditional christian believer. I embrace the Episcopalian/Anglican form of liturgy. But, I do not believe that the christian path is the one true path....it works for me though :)

    So, your job is to find one or more examples and shoot it/them and either post it in your photostream or put it here, if it's kid-friendly. If it's too adult, you can just put it in your stream and point me to it, or send it to me privately. Here's an example of one of our American Jesuses in a magazine shop. I think this one is Mexican.

    lol! i will! ask tom...he had a taste of that when he was here b4.
    we used to have this picture in our room when we were little and i always wondered why Christ has lady-like fingers. hehe

    Bill -- so weird. I was doing searches under the Creative Commons licenses for images of Christ for a church project -- and it's you!

    Feel free to use it Chippa! I took this image from the front of a church bulletin, so it's not my original image, though the photo is original.
