Recently, I had the chance to lead a small circle of folks into the home of friends. We toured the house, hearing stories about the space, what the rooms represented and what their hopes were for the life that would blossom between those walls. We blessed each room, and we blessed our friends who would call it home. This occasion was one of the reasons I’m a pastor, and it’s one of the most Christian acts I know.
I recount the story at Deeper Church.

I had my old house blest when I first bought it. It has been a source of comfort and peace for the past 30 odd years and I hope for many more. What a lovely experience for you to ask God’s blessing on a home and the people who will fill the space with their lives. It brought back warm memories for me of my own house blessing………..thank you.
I love it when someone lives in a place for a very long time.
We had our home blessed before we moved in and continue to use it to the Glory of God.
