The Christian Sojourner

"The Christian sojourner is a dweller, but all dwelling this side of God's good future fully realized is provisional and incomplete. The sojourner sinks roots in a particular place, makes a home, dwells, but she always knows that she could be called elsewhere, to sink roots there, to make a home, and to dwell. The sojourner neither clings to her particular place, like the plowman, nor is indifferent to all places like the wayfarer or postmodern nomad. The sojourner loves her place but without clinging to it."
