The Kingdom

I’m a big fan of Frederick Buechner and ran on to this of his as of late.  Thought I’d share it with you all. Hope your Thanksgiving went well.

Author Frederick Buechner

“If we only had eyes to see and ears to hear and wits to understand, we would know that the Kingdom of God in the sense of holiness, goodness, beauty is as close as breathing and is crying out to born both within ourselves and within the world; we would know that the Kingdom of God is what we all of us hunger for above all other things even when we don’t know its name or realize that it’s what we’re starving to death for.  The Kingdom of God is where our best dreams come from and our truest prayers.  We glimpse it at those moments when we find ourselves being better than we are and wiser than we know.  We catch sight of it when at some moment of crisis a strength seems to come to us that is greater than our own strength.  The Kingdom of God is where we belong.  It is home, and whether we realize it or not, I think we are all of us homesick for it.”
