Fellowship of Heretics Daily Devotional: December 9, 2016 — There Was No Room for Them In The Inn



Compiled by Mercy Junction Justice and Peace Center Director Beth Foster

“Home is the place where, when you have to go there, they have to take you in.” — Robert Frost

When you have no where else to go, you should be able to go home. When you’ve made the biggest mistake of your life, when you’re in trouble up to your eyeballs, when you can’t see your next step, you should be able to go home. And, at home, they should take you in, even when — especially when — no one else wants you. For those of us who have this place, this home, our responsibility is to work toward a world where everyone does.

Today’s Action: Home is not just a place. Home is also people — those people who will always take you in no matter what. Today, make a list of the people who for your are “home.” These are the safe ones, the ones who will hug you when you’ve done wrong, help you find your way when you’re in trouble, and rejoice with you when you win. Write their names on a piece of paper and say a prayer of gratitude for each of them.
