* a plant, vine, or tree growing
* the "tide" of Christ flowing out of us onto/into the world
* the statue of Christ where the hands have fallen off - and we have to be the hands of Christ (pretty popular story, but don't know the source)
* Lord's Prayer (thy kingdom come . . . )
* being the light of Christ’s mercy and justice in the world (open our eyes, so that we may see)

*Psalm 61

Kingdomtide is the season to be living out the kingdom. Our present banners have a crown and greek symbols. Not very helpful symbols in our date and time. I asked the pastors and some of their thoughts were: serving hands, earth, world communion, humble king, basin and towel, pouring out of bread and wine.
