18 Apr John 14:2 (many dwelling places)

* Welcome God every morning before work by taking ~5 min to read this Living In Faith Exchange (LIFE) Group devotion (, which has snippets from Living Faith (

In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places. John 14:2

Living Faith snippets: “This statement has always given me comfort because it makes me believe that there is no single way to be a follower of Jesus. There’s room for us who come at things from an unconventional, perhaps nontraditional worldview. It’s important to remember this, particularly when Christians bemoan every disagreement as a failure of “unity.” For some, it’s not unity, but uniformity, that is the ideal: we should all believe and behave in exactly the same way. But no two humans have exactly the same perception or experience of God. Though we agree on essentials, our beliefs are not exactly the same due to the differences in our experiences and our deep preferences. Keeping in mind that there “are many dwelling places” can perhaps reduce the anxiety and discord over these differences and allow us to appreciate our diversity as human beings.” by Aileen O’Donoghue
