The Beloved Community
How does the kingdom of God make itself known in our world, and does our passion for community spring beyond people who are just like us? An emailer poses the question to Wayne about how our thirst for community goes beyond the people we naturally fall in with in our culture. Referring to Dr. Martin Luther King’s description of what he called the Beloved Community, begs the question of how much of that can our world systems attain? The kingdom has come not to change our world systems, but to replace them with a different way of living that each of us can embrace every day. God’s kind of community doesn’t gravitate to our own interest groups, but reaches out to encompass people as people, not as part of one group or another.
