Loving the Place We Call Home: Our Community Part One

Unpack Your Boxes

When we moved to a small-town we had never heard of before, for our first calling into ministry, it did not immediately feel like home. That was 2 ½ years ago and we lived with a generous couple from the church for the first three months and after that we found our own place. Furniture does not make a house a home, but once we started hanging picture frames everything seemed more permanent! Nails in the drywall were the simple realization that I needed. If we tried to live with our boxes half packed we would miss out on loving the community and church to which God had brought us. Putting down roots is an important component to settling in and serving the Lord in our new small-town home, however long our stay.
