Just A House - Benedition For A New Home

We just moved into a new house. It’s a house we could very easily stay in for the next 10-30 years. As we’ve been preparing for the move, I’ve been thinking about the kind of “thing” a house is. I wrote the following as a sort of benediction, a prayer of thanksgiving, and a request […]
