“We catch a glimpse on Christmas of God so vulnerable, so trusting of us, so in need of relationship. We touch into a startling realization that God actually desires a home among the likes of us. Because that’s what love does–it wants to come closer. Social distancing is not the antithesis of this love’s yearning, it is just an invitation to tap into a deeper thread of connection.
God will not be limited by our confined spaces. God will not be thwarted by our grasping at places.
Leaving home even while we stay home–finding home like never before–moving together into a new world, a new way for the human family to be at home together. That’s the home God offers us with each other.”
