What is a home?

"Most people have forgotten nowadays what a home can mean, though some of us have come to realize it as never before.  It is a kingdom of its own in the midst of the worlds, a haven of refuge amid the turmoil of our age, nay more, a sanctuary.  It is not founded on the shifting sands of private and public life, but has a peace in God.  For it is God who gave it its special meaning and dignity, its nature and privilege, its destiny and worth."

Dietrich Bonhoeffer, quoted in Kurt Senske's book, "The Calling," page 130
