Home Is Where My People Are: The Roads That Lead Us to Where We Belong
Home Is Where My People Are: The Roads That Lead Us to Where We Belong
All roads lead to home. It's easy to go through life believing that we can satisfy our longing for home with a three-bedroom, two-bath slice of the American dream that we mortgage at 4 percent and pay for over the course of thirty years. But ultimately, in our deepest places, we're really looking to belong and to be known. And what we sometimes miss in our search for the perfect spot to set up camp is that wherever we are on the long and winding road of life, God is at work in the journey, teaching us, shaping us, and refining us - sometimes through the most unlikely people and circumstances.In Home Is Where My People Are, Sophie Hudson takes readers on a delightfully quirky journey through the South, introducing them to an unforgettable cast of characters, places, and experiences. Along the way, she reflects on how God has used each of the stops along the road to impart timeless spiritual wisdom and truth. Nobody embodies the South like Sophie Hudson, and this nostalgic celebration of home is sure to make even those north of the Mason-Dixon line long to settle in on the front porch with a glass of sweet tea and reflect on all of the people in our lives who - related or not - have come to represent home. Because at the end of the day, it's not the address on the front door or even the name on the mailbox that says home, but the people who live and laugh and love there, wherever there might happen to be.

Finding My Way Home: Pathways to Life and the Spirit by Henry J.M. Nouwen
Finding My Way Home: Pathways to Life and the Spirit by Henry J.M. Nouwen
Time wasters! Why battle for things that mean nothing in Heaven? Weakness and waiting Total and unconditional dependence on God Details Four soul-searching essays from Henri Nouwen explore how weakness and waiting connect us with God' power and reveal the path of peace and community. An invitation to set aside worldly struggles and in trusting service, to be surprised by joy.The battle for strength, accomplishment, and relevance monopolizes much of our lives. But as we seize power that dominates and hurts others we lose our connection to our source. Nouwen helps us see the theology of weakness not as a worldly weakness that allows us to be manipulated by the powerful in society and church, but as a total and unconditional dependence on God that opens us to be true channels of the divine power that heals the wounds of humanity and renews the face of the earth. (from Finding My Way Home , page 40). In this collection of essays Nouwen shares some of his experiences of living in community with mentally challenged people to offer insight on the opportunities that we all have to bring greater depth and meaning to our lives. He also relates how his brush with death transformed his fear of mortality into a sense of comfort and homecoming.Nouwen's great spirit reminds us that being, not doing will sustain us, and that if we fill our hearts with love, we can follow Christ's guidance in gentleness, mercy, and justice.
