I think, if we are honest, true belonging is what we all want.
Writer Shauna Niequist described this situation as a place of acceptance with gratitude and rest.
Jacobs notes here that he wants friends that will not disown him at the first strong dispute.
That’s what we all want if we are being honest.
We want it from our family and our friends.
Maybe even from work too.
I truly believe we all crave deep and intimate relationships.
Theonly real remedy for the dangers of false belonging is the true belonging to, true membership in, a fellowship of people who are not so much like-minded as like-hearted.
