Overview

Home. It is the place we all long to be, yet in today's fragmented society, the concept of home is elusive for many people.

In his new book, Longing for a Homeland, Lynn Anderson traces the wanderings and homesickness of the human race and the irresistible urge to find a place called "home." It is the story of a journey toward fulfillment — a search to fill the God-shaped hole inside — that ends only when we discover that home is not a building, a geographical location, or a people — it is the love, security, and rest that can only be found in the presence of God.

Join Anderson on the journey of a lifetime — a journey to the very heart of God — and experience the peace and joy that can found there. Come home — your life will never be the same.

    Silversight's Story Part 2: Silverkit raced all over the camp trying to see everything at once when she ran into a bramble."Help! I'm stuck!" She yelled. "Look at Silverkit, she's stuck in a bramble like a 2 week old kit. Oh wait she is 2 weeks old!" Whiskerkit said. "That's not cool Whiskerkit" Jaguarkit glared at Whiskerkit. "Here I'll help you" she said padding over to Silverkit. Silverkit thanked her over and over again while she untangled Silverkit. "There. Now I'll take you over to the medicine cat den to get you patched up" Jaguarkit said kindly as she guided a scratched Silverkit over to the den. They met Daisyleaf outside her den who went into freak out mode when she saw Silverkit. "Great Starclan what happened to you?" "Silverkit got into a fight with a bramble" Jaguarkit said. "Well you certaintly can not walk around looking like a mouse that just went through a hole half it's size" Daisyleaf said as she pulled out cobwebs and marigold. As Daisyleaf patted the cobwebs with marigold on them she said, " I really don't see why Crystalstar insists on putting brambles around the camp, everyone just keeps on running into them. I've already treted 4 warriors including Foxfire." Jaguarkit wrinkled her muzzle and said in a very good impression of Foxfire "That stupid bramble ran into me. I'm telling you that that stupid bramble ran into me on purpose." They all laughed and Daisyleaf shooded them out of the medicine cat den and they padded back to the nursery side by side as sisters.
