Reflections Along the Jesus Way

June 4, 2023 – Quote for the Day

“The phrase ‘upside down kingdom’ was popularized by Donald Kraybill in his 1978 book, The Upside Down Kingdom. Kraybill pointed out that Jesus, the king of the kingdom, is the king who triumphs through losing, who is victorious through the humiliation of the cross and who serves by dying.  The kingdom of heaven 1) seeks out, serves and gives grace to the lost, the least and the last, 2) opposes religious scorekeepers who meticulously record both good and bad behavior, and 3) turns the kingdoms of religion upside down and every which way but loose.”
