Making It Real, Sojourners Magazine/January 2008

If we are serious about finding a way to embody more authentically the aspirations and values of our faith instead of those of the culture, we need to start where many of these new conspirators do. We need to rediscover the kingdom of God as not only a theology we affirm on Sunday but a reason to get out of bed on Monday. This calls for new language and images to express God’s new order. Too many of us have settled for eschatological imagery that is divorced from both the urgent issues that fill our world and the important decisions of our daily lives. Of course many social justice Christians tease out some kingdom imagery to support their political advocacy. But often they aren’t any better than the rest of us at embodying these images and values in their daily lives.
