Frederick Buechner on Kingdom...

"If only we has 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 be born within ourselves and within the world... 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 ... The kingdom of God is where we belong. It is home, and whether we realise it or not, I think we are all homesick for it."
