Historically the modern evangelical church has been pretty prescriptive about what you must believe. And if you are uncertain in those beliefs, your faith is called into question. What if you could hold spirituality and uncertainty in tension? I believe that you can. And when you do, you understand what it means to be deeply spiritual but rather uncertain.

"The Kingdom of God is like..." is the way that Jesus often started his stories. He was trying to paint a picture of what the Kingdom of God looks like.

But per…

All of my life I've been taught, and I've taught that the Kingdom of God is the place where God rules and reigns. But what if that's not really right.
