based on Genesis 3:22-23
In this week’s scripture, the humans are banished from Eden and forced to find a new home. We sometimes find ourselves forced into a new place-physically or emotionally-and we seek the comfort of home.
What is home? Is it a specific place? Or is it a person, a feeling? How do we find home when we have been estranged?
Today, we return to church after summer vacations. And like the hotel commercial, “We have kept the light on for you.” Christ was with you. Christ is with you. Christ welcomes you home. And so do we.
