we spend our life trying to become, but the beauty is in the unbecoming

Capernum (March 2017, Israel)

I’m struck by the story of the paralyzed man who was lowered through the roof when Jesus came home to Capernaum. First, Jesus was from Nazareth, but Capernaum was his home? Shout out to all of us who find home away from our place of birth, who experience love from our adopted urban family. Second, I always thought the reason the paralyzed man even bothered to have his besties lug him on a mat to see Jesus was because he wanted to walk again. But in truer translation, it is actually because he was so interested in what Jesus had to say, that his friends wanted him to physically here Jesus’ words. The walking again was unexpected.
