When ever it is Friday at noon (during Lent), and I know I am not going to eat or drink until I am having communion at my little church, I think of Christ’s words, that He will not eat and drink with them until the coming of the kingdom. And I think of how we believe the church is meeting earth-heaven together, because of the Eucharist and how the kingdom has come and is coming…

Sometimes I find myself thinking, I am not going to eat or drink until tonight, when the kingdom comes.

How much more must I long for the full kingdom of God to come—when all our trials and temptations are over and we are home with God—Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
