The Kingdom of God meets us at the intersection of our hope for the future and the reality of today. But what does that Kingdom look like? Jesus often compared the Kingdom of God to a banquet or feast, a timely metaphor as we move into Thanksgiving week. But when Jesus teaches, even a familiar activity like sharing a meal becomes unfamiliar. The power and the promise of the Kingdom of God is its ability to invert our expectations, opening us to the new possibilities that God intends for us.
