episode notes

In this episode, Miroslav Volf and Drew Collins discuss home as a source of joy and humanity; the way we organize and order our homes for hospitality; and the homelessness of God and what that means for humanity.

For many, the first thought of home is the threat of its negation: homelessness. Still others think of the stress and anxiety—sometimes even at life-threatening levels—of being at home. For some home is grounding, a place of safety and growth, it is embrace. For others, home is hostile, unsafe and risky, it is exclusionary. This episode features discussions of:

  • The theological and moral significance of home
  • The meaning of Jesus's homelessness
  • Marie Kondo's philosophy of joy and home organization
  • Dorothy Day's voluntary poverty and "personal maximalism"
  • Home as a place for embrace, joy, and care
