In Church lately, we’ve been hearing about the Kingdom of Heaven. The Kingdom of Heaven is like a Sower who went out to sow seed. The Kingdom of Heaven is like a field of wheat and weeds. The Kingdom of Heaven is like a pearl of great price.
In the coming weeks, we will hear about the Kingdom of Heaven bursting onto the life of Earth. This year, that began with the Revelation of Jesus’ Glory on Mt. Tabor (the Transfiguration). Usually, however, our study of the Kingdom of Heaven being established upon Earth begins with Jesus’ miraculous feeding of the 5,000, which happened to be our Gospel reading for this past Monday.
So, beginning with this post, we begin a 7 part series on the in-breaking of the Kingdom of Heaven – Thy Kingdom Come.
Part 1 – God is Generous
Part 2 – 19th Sunday in Ordinary Time – Jesus is God, Jesus is King
Part 3 – 20th Sunday in Ordinary Time – Faith & the Kingdom of God
Part 4 – 21st Sunday in Ordinary Time – The King’s Steward
Part 5 – 22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time – The King’s Coronation
Part 6 – 23rd Sunday in Ordinary Time – Leading in Love
Part 7 – 24th Sunday in Ordinary Time – Pay it Forward: A Mission of Mercy
(NB: All titles subject to change.)
I look forward to walking together over these next weeks!
