Thy Kingdom Come

October 30 – November 20 2016

Thy Kingdom Come: One of the insights of Christian philosopher James K. A. Smith is that, as

human beings, we are fundamentally lovers directed toward an ultimate love, or in his

terminology, a kingdom. This is true for Christian and non-Christian alike; we all have some

kingdom toward which we are moving ourselves. Our sermons from October 30 th through

November will explore how our readings define the Kingdom of God, and our prayer is that our

hearts would be captivated by this vision such that we are reoriented from our own kingdoms

towards the Kingdom of God, such that we can more faithfully pray ‘Thy Kingdom Come.’
