05 Home Is a Place of Joy
From Series: "Coming Home - Shawnee Mission Campus"
The holidays are a time when we think about home. For some, home is a place of warm memories. For others, home was a place you couldn’t wait to escape. But all of us have some sense that we aren’t quite at home in the world. One of the many ways the Bible talks about the human experience is the feeling of being away from our true home. The Bible calls this exile. We are all—to use Steinbeck’s turn of phrase—living East of Eden. This Advent we are going to explore our longing for home and look at the hope that the Old Testament book of Isaiah offers that one day we will be able to come home at last.
