Where is home?

October 2, 2006

I’ve been thinking about this a lot over the last few days.  My mom asked me on Sunday as I was preparing to head back to Ottawa whether it felt like I was going home.  This is a hard question to answer, it feels like I am, especially as we’re still a family with no fixed address.  We’ve been moving around a lot, and my family will be in the house where they’re currently residing in Toronto no longer than I am here.  I guess I feel like I’m among good friends here in Ottawa, even though it has only been a month. So I could say that it felt like I was leaving home (my family) for home (my friends).  I guess there’s also a spiritual aspect to the fact that if I believe we’re the body of christ, then it follows that these are my brothers and sisters here in Ottawa as well.  If this is the case then there’s even more reason to see this as home too.  Things to think about I guess.
