An archived conversation about the Kingdom of God

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.
