Signs of the Kingdom

Jesus, in the gospel, asks: What is the Kingdom like? And goes on telling stories to illustrate the Kingdom.
Looking around today, what stories point to the Kingdom?
Of course we would want to point out that the slayings in Norway, carried out by "a fundamental christian" are far from the Kingdom.
Pictures of drought stricken communities and war ravaged cities are not obvious signs either, though, in all of these stories, we find God at work despite human beings.
The question for us, though, is: To what stories do we contribute that point positively to the Kingdom of God existing in our midst?
How do we become signs of the Kingdom?
