on the way home.
So it is that we are focused ahead—
down the road—focused beyond,
on a way through the world—
not only a hope we anticipate,
but also the promise—the assurance—
that calls us home into the fulfillment of time—
our future unfolding into God.
In this way, home will ever be, we believe,
seen and known now only dimly and in part
in our going to and fro on the earth.
