The Dream of God

On July 27 I was given the opportunity to preach on Matthew 13:31-33, 44-52. A pastor friend of mine pointed out that the concept of the "Kingdom of God" is probably lost on our current culture. Instead it was suggested to be more helpful to be the "Dream of God" because that's going to stimulate our imagination in a more helpful way. Consequently, I read the gospel making that substitution and tried to use that as a jumping off point for my sermon. Jesus gives us some rich pictures for the Dream/Kingdom of God, do any resonate with you? What images might you suggest?
