Rebuilding the Walls

Over the past months I’ve had the pleasure of watching from my office as a major renovation of the “Jerusalem” house has taken place.  Jerusalem was one of the earliest Community households, and one where many members have lived over the years, so there is anticipation as its “renewal” nears completion, and also grateful memories of life lived there over time.  Privately I’ve dubbed the project “rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem” which of course summons biblical references to Jesus’ return and to prophecy of the final days.  There is clearly an element of joy tinged with waiting, watching, remembering.
