Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord.
7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.
"As a youngster,” writes David Adam, “I always wanted to know more. I liked to climb the next hill and look around the next corner. My mother said I wanted to see the ‘back of beyond.’ I was never quite sure what she meant, but I was often aware of an otherness in the midst of what was plainly in view.”
David Adam believes that the kingdom of God is all around us—in the beauty and power of nature; in work and leisure; in the love we experience and offer to others. This book suggests that as we develop an awareness of the presence of heaven in each and every day, we will come to trust that death itself is nothing to fear. Illustrated with simple line drawings, Living in Two Kingdoms contains many personal stories, anecdotes, prayers, and exercises.
Both visionary and engagingly down to earth, Living in Two Kingdoms helps us to recognize that the visible world of matter and the invisible world of spirit are not two worlds but one. We can be sure that whatever harsh reality we may have to face from time to time, the true reality is that we are never on our own. Because here and now— whatever it may feel like—we are truly part of the kingdom of God.
