Noelle Mering “Theology of Home” - Lisa Hendey & Friends #81

December 24, 2019
On this week's show, we appreciate the comfort and beauty of "home" with Noelle Mering. Noelle is the coauthor of the book Theology of Home: Finding the Eternal in the Everyday and an editor of the online magazine theologyofhome.com. She also writes frequent on the topics of culture, politics, and religion and has published in National Review, The Federalist, and National Catholic Register. Noelle and her husband live in Southern California with their six children. 
 
 
Why do Americans love their homes, spending hundreds of billions of dollars annually on home improvement, renovations, and decor, but meanwhile, the notion of a homemaker is still held in contempt? The theology of home responds to this tension by examining the idea that home is meant to be a foreshadowing of heaven and a preparation for the eternal home for which we all, wittingly or not, long. In seeking to understand the ‘why’ behind home we can reorient ourselves to dive more deeply in our relationships — first with God, then our spouses and children, and extending into our communities and friendships.
