Creating the Kingdom of God
God’s Kingdom is less a place or an idea than it is a total commitment
to love one another--for it is through our love of one another that
we become the agents of God, willing to work to bring about God’s
Kingdom on the earth in the present time. That Kingdom is a union
of free human beings united to God and to each other; it is the
fullest manifestation of the transcendent holiness and incarnate
wholeness of Being. The Kingdom is already here, yet is still to
come, and it will come by God’s grace with the free cooperation
the human race.
