As I write this I’m surrounded by boxes. Moving boxes, filled with books. I’m in the middle of packing up my office as we prepare to vacate our old church building at 1 SW 17th St.
I must confess to feeling quite conflicted. My journey with Jesus calls me to a posture of rootedness and deep connection. There’s an ancient saying from the desert monastics that has formed me greatly: “In whatever place you live, do not easily leave it.”
