You Can Go Through Home Again

The great wisdom says that can’t go home again and that is true. But I have learned that you can go through home again. We had dinner last night with friends of twenty years ago.  So much has happened to both couples.  The words of the wedding vows — For Better — For Worse — For Richer — For Poorer — In Sickness and In Health were so present in our conversation.  These vows reflect the medieval notion of the “wheel of fortune” that whatever your station or situation it is subject to change hence the vows.  For Christians the marriage relationship is to be lived at the hub of the wheel so that as the wheel turns it remains constant. I like to think of Christ himself being the linchpin of the wheel.
