Definitions

Last night’s time of prayer – prayer service – brings to mind some definitions – these belong to me, not to Webster or anyone else.

Shelter – a place of protection from the elements, from animals, from other people

HouseĀ – a place to live, constructed in many ways and different styles using a variety of materials

Home – a place of belonging, built on a network of relationships and interactions with one another, grounded in love, filled with memories

May we all have shelters … houses … homes.

See you along the Trail.

Stillness fills the dark

Musty stillness
fills the dark
as he steps again
into the house:
alone.
