An archived conversation about the Kingdom of God

In simplest terms, a conversation about the Kingdom of God is a conversation about how to live in the world as it was made by God to be lived in. Toward this end, sermons at Epiphany expand on the insights provided by scripture and particularly by the life of Jesus Christ. The exposition focuses on context, both historical and current, as well as practical “take home” exercises that allow the realities of God to take root in our hearts.
