Me too

Just because it’s good, here’s something dug up by Stephen Lingwood:

The follower of Jesus is to discover and then promote the Kingdom of God. That Kingdom has two tenses: it is already here, in each one of us; and it is still to come, when God’s goodness becomes a universal norm. We are to live now ‘as if’ the Kingdom of God were already fulfilled.

Sydney Bailey, 1993
Quaker Faith and Practice, 24.57
