The Grove Prompt: Domestication

I recently heard someone’s home described as a cross between a Ritz Carlton and a monastery. That tickled me and gave me a new aspiration for my own home. Ritz Carlton is laughably out of reach, but comfort and soul are nice guiding principles.

This description is so attractive because it points to an intersection of material and sacred. And that’s the beauty of Jesus. God in a body. That cosmic moment of uniting material and sacred. What a comfort.

We’re talking Domestication this week, and that can go many directions – homes and families, pets and plants, the Incarnation and incarnational living overseas, when to be tame and when to stay wild.

My guess is we’ll find some helpful intersection for those who desire to live soulfully.
