The “kingdom of God”

On Sunday we listened to some parables of Jesus about the kingdom of heaven. Did you hear them? Here is an extension of a conversation we began on Sunday; listen again:

The kingdom of God is not something in the far future that is going suddenly to come down from heaven and settle on you and magically turn everything right. You yourselves are It. It’s in you and among you; you have to do It or It will never come.Beatrice Bruteau Source: The Holy Thursday Revolution
