If you mention the phrase "The Kingdom of God" to a group of people, I'm confident that the mental images appearing in each person's mind will be as divergent as are the people imagining them. Jesus teaches that the Kingdom is like a mustard seed which grows we know not how. Humility is a good place to begin in any worship experience. Maybe we could remind ourselves that our image of the Kingdom isn't the definitive one.
