Too often, the Father's children assert themselves to divide against one another. To reject the legitimacy of one another. Instead, we should look around those gathered around the Father's table to see whom the Lord has gathered there.
Eventually, everyone is ready to get back home. But the joy of coming home does not last beyond the reminders of so much work to do once we are there. Disciples of Jesus learn to recognize in these things the promise of a homecoming someday that will finally and forever fulfill all of these longings without any disappointment.
