Coming homeAugust 2 - 16, 2020

During our life’s journey, we may find ourselves defining home from three points of view – the settler, the nomad, or the pilgrim. Home looks different from each of these views as we alternately seek to stay home, find home, or return home. At each stage, what is our willingness to change and what is God’s role in it?

Let's explore these 3 views or stages.

Part 1: Pilgrimage

Part 2 - Challenges in the family

We cannot speak of home without speaking of family. And – with a smile – we can’t speak of family without speaking of drama. The fact is all families struggle at times. There are many examples Jesus offers us as we seek to define home through the people who live there with us. The answers are not always easy, but the conversation is indeed good!

Part 3 - The art of homecoming

We live fractured, silo-ed lives; divided from others, but also deeply divided within ourselves. How do we find a simpler way to live that pulls the fractured parts into a mended whole? The art of homecoming can bring us home anywhere because it creates home wherever we are.
