We Are Not Guests
A Reflection by Rev. Alicia Roxanne Forde
Am I a guest here. Here in this House. Are you?
Are we guests here. Here in this House. And, whose House do we inhabit?
In the small world of our lives
the borders between us: easements, fences, gates, hedges – serve to delineate,
to separate us. To remind us of where my property begins and ends.
Where your property begins and ends.
If you cross over: you are a trespasser or a guest in my house.
