Scripture: Luke 12:13-21
Liddy Grantland brought our message this morning. She serves as the service team leader for two L’Arche homes outside Washington D.C. Liddy shared with us stories of L’Arche community life, particularly during COVID, including some of the joys and the frustrations.
God wants us to live in the world as our home, with each other as our family, finding treasure not in stuff, or wealth, or certainty, or rightness, or perfection, or even righteous anger. But in the embrace of one another.
The work that God has called us to do is indeed to find treasures here on earth, in the people we encounter, and are called to make community with. For it is in doing the hard lifetime work of loving and forgiving and belonging with each other, that we come to see the face of God in the faces of one another.
