Where a home is a bench

Reader NDM takes me to task on Christian terms for my call to boycott Utah for organized Momon California Prop 8 actions. That’s put my thinking in a biblical bent today.

So when I read that a Ohio judge has allowed homeless voters to use the address of a bench or other non-building as a residence, I thought of this:

As they were going along the road, someone said to him,  ‘I will follow you wherever you go.’ And Jesus said to him, ‘Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head. ‘ (Luke 9:57-58, NRSV)

A vote isn’t a substitute for a home or a healthy life, but it’s a place to start . . . .
