Imagine, you’re hanging out with some friends. Maybe you’re having coffee at Starbucks, talking with a friend about an investment opportunity. Maybe you’re sitting on a cousin’s porch watching the sun set over a field of sweet peas.
One member of your group, or a passerby or a guy at the next table starts talking about something called the Kingdom of Heaven. You tune in, follow along, hear his story and wonder. Later, you tell your friends about the incident, the story and how it affected you. You listen to their experiences and your own perceptions deepen.
