Wherever God is, his kingdom – the final kingdom – draws near. He is the God of peace, whose presence brings freedom from all inner restlessness, all dividedness of heart, and every hostile impulse.… God wants to bestow an indestructible harmony upon our inner life, a harmony that shall have an effect outwardly in mighty melodies of love. Power to act results from the energy born of inner gathering. The gathering of hearts leads to the gathering of a people who show in their industrious work that the kingdom of God is justice, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.
