This morning I read the book of Haggai in THE MESSAGE. The introduction spoke to me:
” God doesn ´t live in buildings (“The God who made the heavens dosn´t live in custum-mades shrines.”)….
We are not angels. We inhabit space. Material – bricks and mortar, boards and nails – keeps us grounded and connected with the ordinary world in which we necessary live out our extraordinary beliefs.”
The book of Haggai then describes how the people were building a place for meeting up with God. And how God told them “I am with you” and “I own all the silver and the gold.
It encouraged me for my boat project. God does not need a space. Yet – we need spaces that help us meet up with him. That is my dream for this boat that it would become a space where people
– could meet God – the God who is with you
– could find healing
– could find new hope
– could find friends.
