Q: Hey, man. Why is your blog called ‘K I N G D O M .’? Tried guessing, but you don’t have ‘king’, ‘dom’ or ‘ngdo’ in your name. What does it even mean? And why are there unnecessary spaces between each character? You’re confusing me.
A: Hello, friend. That’s a good – nay, great – question. Here’s a little something I prepared earlier.
The name comes from some of the key Bible verses that inspired this endeavour. The verses go a little something like this:
“The kingdom of heaven is like the yeast a woman used in making bread. Even though she put only a little yeast in three measure of flour, it permeated every part of the dough.” – Matthew 13:33.
“The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches.” – Matthew 13:31-32.
So you see, this kingdom that’s mentioned in these verses initially starts off as a tiny little nugget, but its impact grows into something far greater and more significant than one could ever imagine. It grows to become something that serves and benefits others (that’s the part about the birds).
The kingdom of heaven is cool. And can I tell you something awesome? It’s here on earth too, AND everyone is welcome.
Justice, among other things, is a massive value of the kingdom of heaven. K I N G D O M . exists to permeate all aspects of life with these values, and allow them to manifest themselves in practical ways.
As for the spaces, I thought it’d be good to give the letters a little room to breathe. Elbowroom is always nice. So is leg-space. Especially on planes.
Q: Yessum! Thank you! (Not a real question.)
A: You’re welcome.
