Welcome to Different Kingdom, the blog of Trevor Lloyd. I am a leader of Community Church Huddersfield, in West Yorkshire, in the UK. I am committed to a vision of the kingdom of God that is radically, totally and completely different from the kingdoms of this world. The character of God's kingdom is most fully, though enigmatically, expressed in the Sermon on the Mount. Its primary characteristic is the counter-cultural way of selfless, serving and sacrifical love; this is the way of the Cross, the way of the Lamb who is seated on the throne of this kingdom. The rule of this kingdom is therefore not tyrannical, oppressive or even hierarchical but is one of serving, empowering and liberating love. It is such an understanding of the kingdom that this blog is intending to explore.
