In this issue, our authors gather to remind us of the multifaceted nature of “Dwelling Place”. They introduce us to important topics, such as God’s “tabernacling” presence from the testimony of the Bible and our responsibility to care for the livable pace for all creatures.

      Their guiding spirit helps us once again explore the age-long aspiration to stay in communion with God as the profound meaning of the ark of the Hebrew Bible and the theology of incarnation. The theological thrust of their weavings has a corollary in the call for responsible actions in the immediate context of our times, which ranges from the local ministry of providing intellectual living space for others to caring for refugees forced to leave their home in search of a new dwelling place.

Even people who have never read the Bible, or attended Sunday school, or listened to sermons, have heard something of Jonah and the whale. But it is just this familiarity and this obsession with the whale that keep us from understanding and appreciating the more profound meanings of this portion of Scripture
