Thursday Thoughts - March 9

In today’s world of increasing uncertainty and growing violence there comes a time for seeking shelter. We all need a dwelling place or space, not just an address. This space will include memories, stories, emotions, identity, imagination and much more, going far beyond a material structure. Rest, refuge, welcome, hospitality, and direction offer us a place to belong and to be loved in our becoming. Such places and spaces cannot be bought or sold. They are not consumer products, but deeply rooted in being in community with the living God, which transforms our hearts and minds, so that we too can offer shelter to others in need.
