Finding Home

Updated: Jul 30, 2023

What does the word home mean to you?

It is likely that the word "home" evokes different emotions and ideas for each of us. For some, it is a physical place that provides shelter, comfort, and a sense of belonging. Home can be a place where family and friends gather and memories are created. For others, home may be a distant memory, evoking nostalgia and the longing for a simpler time. Home could be the place where you grew up or a beloved location that holds significance for a season of your life.

For others, perhaps, the idea of home goes beyond a physical location or a memory. It is a feeling of safety, security, and rest that one seeks in life. Home, then, can be a place where one finds solace, where one connects with family or birth or choice, and where one can recharge their batteries.

No matter how you define home, our ever-changing, uncertainty-filled world seems to lack spaces where people can find refuge and peace, places of deep intentionality where we can let our guard down and be our true selves.

In his confessions, Saint Augustine of Hippo reflects on the nature of the human heart and our innate desire for a true home. He recognizes that our hearts are restless, and we are constantly searching for something to fill the void within us. Augustine acknowledges that true rest and peace can only be found in God, who has created us for Himself.

As followers of Christ, we hold that our quest for home must ultimately lead us to God, who is the source of all our deepest longings and desires.

We invite you to journey with us as we explore the search for home through biblical stories.
