Home: The Quest to Belong

Home: The Quest to Belong
Home is a deeply human need, and for many people, what it looks like is not straightforward. Noting that the metaphor of pilgrimage is compelling for Christians, Jo Swinney makes the case that we need roots in the soil of place, community and work to flourish. Working from Simone Weil's insight, Jo Swinney reflects on the needs of the soul in our quest to belong.

Jo Swinney was born in the UK, but grew up in Portugal and France. She went to an English boarding school, did a gap year in southern Africa and in her twenties studied theology in Canada, where she met her American husband. Now back in the UK, she's had more reason than most to wonder what 'home' really means. She draws on a combination of memoir, biblical stories about David and insights from psychology and sociology to explore what it takes to find where we belong and to become people who offer that belonging to others. Interweaving a frank and poignant retelling of her own story with theological and psychological insights, Jo's original and authentic exploration of home in all its many and varied forms is a heartfelt call to find our home in the things that are truly of most value.
