October 2: Communion Sunday| The Coming Kingdom of God| Luke 17:20-30| Peter Barnes
The terms “kingdom of God” and “kingdom of heaven” appear 86 times in the gospels. But in America kings and kingdoms don’t play a significant role, and our country was founded in part in reaction to a king’s rule. So we have a harder time appreciating what this whole idea means for the followers of Jesus Christ today. What does it mean to pray, “Your kingdom come, Your will be done”?
