We begin our worship series, Reaching in Love, this Sunday with reflection on Jesus’ commission to witness in Jerusalem (Acts 1.8). Jerusalem was home for many of the followers of Jesus. In a reflection on home, Frederick Buechner writes:
The word home summons up a place-more specifically a house within that place-which you have rich and complex feelings about, a place where you feel, or did feel once, uniquely at home, which is to say a place where you feel you belong and which in some sense belongs to you, a place where you feel that all is somehow ultimately well even if things aren’t going well at any given moment (The Longing for Home, 7).
Spend some time today reflecting on your image of home. What arises within you as you reflect on home? Where do you find home today?
