Michael Vogel describes and reflects on the experience expressed by the Psalmist upon arriving at Jerusalem and the temple after a long journey: an experience of joy, unity, and whole peace.
Questions for reflection:
1. Why is it hard to see the church as your home? How might the Lord’s presence help change that?
2. What do you make into your home? How might you be using the church as a road stop for that destination?
3. With whom do you still lack unity? What are ways you can seek unity with them?
4. How can you pray for the peace of the church? Who do you know is in need of God’s peace? How can you regularly pray for them?
