During the season of Lent, I will be sharing a short post each day as part of the Lent-Photo-a-Day Journey, providing a sort of brief reflection and witness through the journey to and through the cross, to the tomb, and out into the world.
The word designated for February 24th is “Kingdom.”
I couldn’t just pick one photo as a sign of God’s kingdom and in-breaking. Here are four pictures which in different ways suggest a sign of God’s in-breaking and the in-breaking of God’s kingdom. In the first picture, we see a mural depicting the hopes of Martin Luther King Jr., and the goals of equality and justice. In the next, we see some of God’s beauty in creation. In the next, we see what is possible when people come together in relationship. Finally, the wordle depicts some of what a number of junior high and high school students lifted up when answering questions about what they want to serve, respond to, and work to improve.
What signs do you see of the kingdom?
