Lent: The Kingdom of God as the Truth of Easter

By Jarrod McKenna 2-25-2015 | Series:

Australian Catholic Archbishop Mark Coleridge shares a powerful reflection on the Lord’s Prayer:

Some of my favorite quotes:

“The kingdom of God is the world of justice, truth, and compassion … is reality. It’s in fact the ground of all reality. And unless we touch into that world we are in fact creating a world that is unreal. We are building on sand, and not stone.”

“A politics that is worthy of God is a politics that is worthy of human beings.”

“When we say your kingdom come we are not just crying out for, but proclaiming, the truth of Easter.”

“The kingdom of God is a statement of faith … of what’s possible.”

Join Common Grace in rediscovering the power of how Jesus taught us to pray. As we prepare our hearts to offer back to God our lives in this season, lets enter deeply into Jesus’ invitation into God’s heart for the world; the Lord’s Prayer.
