What the path of violence does not know how to deal with is a movement, a kingdom, whose citizens refuse to believe that violence will determine the meaning of history. #DailySermon #GospelofMatthew #ProvokingFaith @BaptistBookworm @BlmsburyBaptist https://t.co/TlyG94pfvI

Apocalypse Now #4: Heaven’s Perspective on Prayer
"Our prayers are ushering in the kingdom of God, one life at a time. A world in which a prayer to God has been offered, is a world in which a prayer to the Emperor has been denied. And if we can learn to turn our eyes from the lures of the empire in our world, with all its seductions an coercions, then we are also learning to turn our lives from the violence that the empire generates, and are bringing into being the peaceable kingdom of Christ for which we pray." - Simon Woodman.
