Summary: Drawing from the physical and spiritual terrain that she has inhabited throughout her life--predominantly around her home in Minneapolis, Minnesota--the author leads the reader on the quest to feel at home with one's self and one's beliefs. With honesty, and subtlety, Andrew's meditations turn to the details of household maintenance--the cluttered pantry, the loose-screened porch, the dim bedroom--and neighborly relations, using a lath-and-plaster language to address the sometimes empty, sometimes exuberant seasons of the spiritual life. Occasionally whimsical, often at odds, always probing, these reflections serve as a model of the contemplative life as experienced in contemporary society. An evocation of home and its revelations to the human spirit, The Welcome connects the common place to an interior realm of doubt, memory, imagination, and prayer, and launches this private search outward into life in the community--in neighborhood, church, and intimate love.
