The Women’s Book Study is currently reading “Come On Home: Healing the Homesickness of the Soul” by James W. Moore. Drawing on Scripture and his own stories, Moore explores how to embrace the New Testament theme that happiness is the by-product of being in “right” relationships, of being “at home” with God and with others. More than once, Jesus reminds us that the Great Commandment is to love God and to love other people. And that is what Matthew 6:33 is all about: “But seek first God’s kingdom and his righteousness and everything else will fall into place for you.”
