If our contemporary culture does not readily acknowledge how perpetual motion can dumb down our souls, we do maintain at least the memory that a faithful journey will always lead us back to where we started from, opening our eyes to the potential of a place that we were not able to see before we left it. It takes a trip to Oz for Dorothy to say and say again, “There’s no place like home.” Even when it is reduced to sentimental nostalgia, the sentiment has power because our longings point us homeward…. Christian wisdom about stability points us toward the true peace that is possible when our spirits are stilled and our feet are planted in a place we know to be holy ground. When we get this stability of heart deep down inside of us, real growth begins to happen.
