The Suburban Vagabond

On a search for a better world, finding it in the most unlikely places

Right Here…


The farther I go in life, the more I am convinced that the primary manifestation of what I have come to understand as the Kingdom of Heaven is not in grandiose, extravagant displays of power and high religious experience. The Kingdom is with you – in you – right now, in your living room, your neighborhood, your workplace. The world is broken all around you and in need of sacrificial love. You and I are the ones chosen to build this Beautiful Kingdom…let us build it with our neighbors, our families, our enemies, let us build it on a thousand small acts of beauty and love. Let us begin in this moment.

Grace and Peace,
The Vagabond
