In Scripture, the idea of home is closely linked with the presence of God and God’s protection. The psalms sing of hiding under the shelter of God’s wings, God as a crag and stronghold. God is a place of safety. At the same time, being at home with God is more than just safety. In the Gospel of John, Jesus promises, “My father and I will come and make our home with you.” When we dwell with God and in God, we find our truest home.
