Fellowship of Heretics Daily Devotional: December 2, 2016 — There Was No Room for Them In The Inn



Compiled by Mercy Junction Justice and Peace Center Director Beth Foster

“A house is no home unless it contains food and fire for the mind as well as for the body.” — Margaret Fuller

There was no room for them in the inn. So they went to the stable. Can a stable be a home? “Home” is the place where we go to renewed, safe, disconnected. Where not only our bodies find warmth, nourishment, safety and inspiration; but, also where our spirits can heal and be inspired before going back out into the world. A stable can be a home; and, a mansion may or may not be. Home is that place where we can be completely safe, completely ourselves and completely at rest.

Today’s Action: If you have a home, walk through the rooms of your space. Make a list of what makes this place home. What is it that makes you feel safe, nourished and inspired in your home? If you don’t have a home, whether that means you are without a dwelling or the place you are dwelling doesn’t nourish you, think about places you have lived that were a “home” for you? What made those places safe, nourishing and inspiring?

Today’s Sharing: Tell us about what has made your dwelling places a home? Share your stories on our Facebook page at facebook.com/holyhereticzine
