i've been out of commission these past couple weeks as we've gotten serious about moving from our old home in new britain to our new home in new haven. this process has made me reflective all over again about the way home ownership is something more than ownership. we've really learned to love the homes we've lived in, thinking about our tenure as one in a link over time that extends in both cases back for the better part of a century. thinking about those who built the home, those who put up all that bamboo wallpaper, the kids now grown who ran through the halls and yard where our children now play. wow. and we add our piece to that ongoing movement. could living in a house be a metaphor for the calling to stewardship of life with the saints? someone has already said this, but i just don't know it.
yesterday my beloved isaiah turned six! here is a picture, but not from the magic school bus party. this pic is from his first day of kindergarten, along with sonja and grace. might as well introduce the whole gang whose abode i've just made the subject of reflection.
but, how i digress. we're connected to the yale center for faith and culture website, from the faith as a way of life project homepage. so, now, i'm diving in to this conversation with hopes that you join with me en:visioning christianity lived. i'll be adding thoughts, some mine, some yours, and other friends and recent reads. for now, anon, and +peace.
