It is more like descending into an old cellar, dark and damp or jumping off a cliff. It is an exercise in humility and surrender where everything belongs yet so much is unknown. The journey into the Kingdom of God is a change of perspective, a re- defining of reality of sorts. Seeing the Kingdom is to see the invisible and what is really real. It means seeing things like God and love. It means experiencing things like solidarity with our neighbor and the joy this brings, and peace. It is more about acceptance than rejection and being little rather than being big. A kingdom person does not follow the cul- ture or get into what is popular at the time, but he doesn't feel the need to condemn it either. It isn't about being "holy" or "getting saved." It is about choosing solidarity over security and meeting the needs of others over your own needs. Americans are obsessed with security. We arm ourselves so no one can harm us, personally and as a nation. We buy insurance for every pos- sible thing that could go wrong. We buy investments and retirement ac- counts to feel secure and then we worry the rest of our lives as the market goes up and down. We are among the most fearful people on the planet. Too many of us live a joyless existence wondering if we are going to have enough. The irony and the curse is that we, the richest country in the world, worry about having enough. The American Empire is on the decline. This is what a CIA report is- sued during the George W. Bush Administration said. In our mad drive for security and comfort, we have mortgaged our future for the American Dream and instant gratification. We refuse to sacrifice for others let alone for ourselves. But still, we have a choice. We can accept the coming changes and make them positive by opting for things like solidarity and living the Beatitudes. We can choose the Kingdom of God and emulate Kingdom people like Martin Luther King, St. Francis, Gandhi, and Mother Teresa. We don't have to settle for the "saints" of fame and for- tune like Lady Gaga whom we go "gaga" over today and watch self de- struct tomorrow. I have learned so much from the Hispanic people. Time and again they have modeled solidarity and the vulnerable life of the Kingdom of God to me. Invariably it is a crisis that needs immediate attention. Many times I have witnessed tomorrow's rent money, grocery money, or time giVen because a friend needed it. It's always done with a smile and with a knowing trust that if the roles were reversed, the other person would give all he had and that God will somehow provide until next payday. And in fact, it is usually only a week or two, and the roles are reversed. The remedy to our unhappiness and feelings of insecurity is not a big- ger bank account or more insurance. What we need is to leave the sys- tems of this world behind and move into the Kingdom of God. We need to quit playing money games and security games and look to Kingdom and find our security in the Lord and each other. In the American kingdom, we value and call holy things that give us the three P's: power, prestige, and possessions. We can measure them, see them, and we can compare ourselves to our neighbor and see how we stand. Choosing the Kingdom of God is scary. There is no yardstick of security. It's an unknown until you are caught in the loving arms of the Father and your neighbor. In the end, it's a choice. Do we want the freedom and joy of an eagle aring over a canyon, or do you want to live inside of your safe dep0,t| x full of gold coins which never see the light of day? Come to T e Kingdom. Peace be with you. /;!/( , %: ! Tuesday, Aug. 16 [ Librarian's Corner Roast Turkey, M. Pot./Gravy, Prince Edward Veg., Apricots.
