Brian McLaren on the Kingdom

I think I've demonstrated here before that I love the image of a kingdom in describing how God works. Jesus talks about it all the time. We have good and bad examples of the image in the Old Testament. Personally, I think I might like it because I've always been fascinated by these kinds of stories - The Princess Bride, The Sword in the Stone, King Arthur, etc.

There were recently two videos put on my favorite visual liturgy site (The Work of the People) of my favorite author, Brian McLaren in which he discusses the image of the Kingdom of God. I've posted them both here (sorry...I'm not sure how to get them to not start playing both at once...you'll have to use the pause button).



Good stuff.
