During World War II, preacher and theologian Helmut Thielieke, came to his bombed out church in Stuttgart. Because of the damage, he had to gather the church in the choir loft. He began his sermon by saying, “Now we continue our series on the Lord’s Prayer.” The sermon he preached that day was “Thy kingdom come.” It is difficult to continue to believe in the kingdom when times are perilous. It takes eyes of faith.
