Gathering: Ending Exile

"...Ministry cannot be about maintainance; it is about gathering, about embrace, about welcoming home 'all sorts of and conditions' of people. Home is a place for the mother tongue, of basic soul food, of old stories told and treasured, of being at ease, known by name, belonging without qualifying for membership. The ministry of gathering is one to which this God has been committed forever.” - W.Brueggemann
