The Kingdom is …

The Kingdom is a glimpse of true manhood and womanhood, without fear or stereotypes or abuses from the world. We are the restored image bearers in concert together, all participating, all parts functioning with holy interdependence. It’s trust and laughter and holy risk taking; it’s vocation and work and worship. It’s sharing leadership and responsibility. It’s turning away from the language of hierarchy and power to the posture of servanthood. It’s affirming all the seasons and callings of each other’s lives. It’s speaking out and working and advocating on behalf of our oppressed brothers and sisters around the world.
