Life Soundtrack 32
Home, by Phillip Phillips
Today Highlands Church said goodbye to the building it's called home for the first three years of its life. It wasn't unexpected; we always knew it was temporary until the developer who owned the building was ready to move ahead with his plans, and soon we'll have an even better building to call home. And ultimately, a church is the people who attend it, not the location where it meets.
Even so, it can be difficult to say goodbye to a building that has served as a sacred space, a safe haven and the place associated with so many good memories. A building may just be a building, but it still takes on the life and character that the people who call it home imbue it with. And so knowing that it will soon no longer be there can be a cause for sadness, as we wait for God to make another place our home.
