A Lot Of Warmth In A WordOct 6th, 2011 | By Jacob | Category: Editorials

If words had a temperature and if it could be measured in degrees how the words felt, I think the word temperature would be a nice toasty warm.
The word evokes many things. Last week, the Madison County High School Cowboys shut out Providence in their homecoming game.
This Sunday, Midway Church of God (the church that I go to) will celebrate its homecoming. It will offer old friends a chance to get together, enjoy a great sermon, great food, great music, and, mostly, great fellowship. It feels very warm.
On Wednesday morning, I watched as Amanda Knox had a warm homecoming with family and friends in Aberdeen, Wash.
In the Bible, we read the story of the Prodigal Son who returns to his father’s house and is greeted warmly by his dad who runs out to meet him.
He had thrown away his inheritance, yet his father welcomed him home.
Have you been away from your family, your friends or your church lately? Why not make an effort to go home and have a homecoming of your own?
Homecoming. There’s a lot of warmth in that word.
