Howard Thurman on the Kingdom of God

From Howard Thurman, Jesus and the Disinherited: “Living in a climate of deep insecurity, Jesus…had to find some other basis upon which to establish a sense of well-being. He knew that the goals of religion as he understood them could never be worked out within the then-established order. Deep from within that order he projected a dream, the logic of which would give to all the needful security. There would be room for all, no one would be a threat to another. ‘The kingdom of God is within.’”
