Developed in the 14th century, the word “dwell” became known as a “lingering” or “abiding.” It had connections to “In-habit” – another word developed at that time. After an Advent/Christmas season of focusing on housing the holy, how will we linger and abide in this habit of hospitality? What habits did you invite into your heart in this season that you desire to take with you into the new year? How might we sustain the dwelling places that feed, house, clothe those who need it most?
The worship service is available in its entirety on YouTube.
