The Kingdom of Heaven

The Kingdom of Heaven is only twenty minutes down the road, for Christ’s sake.  The Kingdom of Heaven is in the movie theater as the old woman gets up to leave, shaking popcorn crumbs out of her lap.  The Kingdom of Heaven is there as the fat man goes driving by in his pickup with the bumper sticker he can’t believe in.  The Kingdom of Heaven is in the eyes of love and longing and blessing that we raise to look at him as though he is a rainbow in the sky.
