here are the links of other bloggers writing this month on “coming home”. add it to the bottom of your posts if you can and check back in the morning to see if there are any additions. thank you all for contributions!
other bloggers writing so far about “coming home” this advent:
The Kingdom of God and Home. These words together are an interesting combination.
Frederick Buechner writes, “The Kingdom of God is where our best dreams come from and our truest prayers. We glimpse it at those moments when we find ourselves better than we are and wiser than we know. We catch sight of it when at some moment of crisis a strength seems to come to us that is greater than our own strength. The Kingdom of God is where we belong. It is home, and whether we realize it or not, I think we are all of us homesick for it.”
For December we thought it would be fun to join in with Christine Sine’s annual Advent synchroblog and center our December topic on the idea of “Coming Home” and how it relates to this season of advent leading up to Christmas. What does Coming Home mean to you this season? Is it practical, spiritual, emotional? What does “home” look like or feel like in the kingdom of God? Do you have a “coming home” story that you’d love to tell?
Share it on your blog on Tuesday December 17th 2013. and then put your link here in the comments section. Christine Sine’s Synchroblog will be running all of December, but we’ll still stick with our same date. We’ll post a link list on Wednesday morning December 18th, and Christine will link to it, too.
All are welcome, the more the merrier!
Thanks to everyone who participated in this month’s synchroblog!
Here’s the list of links for the November synchroblog. Be sure and add this list to the end of your post.
It’s November and all over Facebook folks are practicing 30 days of thankfulness. The last thing you want to do is yet another blog post on gratitude. It all gets a little bit overwhelming this time of year. Soooo … the Synchroblog team thought we could do something a little different. We (with the help of Sonnie Swenston-Forbes) thought it might be a good time for a story. And not just any story, but a story about your faith journey. How did you get to where you are now? What life experiences influenced your place? How have your beliefs changed as a result of your own evolving story? Those are just some questions to get you thinking … it’s your story and we can’t wait to read it!
As always, please post the link to your blog post in the comments below by Tuesday, November 19 and I’ll get the list posted on Wednesday.
