  • Much of the Biblical narrative was written to people living in an imperial context-the Babylonian empire, the Roman empire, and so on.  Are we living in an empire today?  If so, what are some qualities of that empire?
  • If you’re a Christian who attempts to live into the Kingdom within the empire, do you consider yourself subversive?  Do you see yourself as an activist or is there another way you identify yourself?
  • How do you define the term “radical” in the context of the empire and the Kingdom?
