Cookies and the Kingdom of God

I would like to suggest that nothing is a more obvious display of the Kingdom of God in today’s world than the bake room full of cookies.  Having made such an audacious statement, I should now explain.

You see, a bake room full of cookies in and of itself is nothing.  But the bake room full of cookies, specifically the one that sold a few thousand dollars’ worth this past Saturday at our Winterbourne Wonderland fundraiser, put His kingdom on full display.  It was more than baked goods, it was His children building His kingdom in Christian community.  His Kingdom was in the prep work and the cleanup.  It was His people reaching ‘in’ and supporting one another.  It was His people reaching ‘out’ with the love of God to the community.  His kingdom was in the joy and the struggle of the event.  It was in the youngest  and oldest of His children.  The bake room was His courtyard, attended by his faithful, and everyone was welcome.

Praise God for the simplicity and complexity of His Kingdom here on earth, here at Foundation, here in the bake room full of cookies.

Mr. Robinson
