Pizza parlors have a common advertising theme. Many of them proudly proclaim what they are home to. "Home of the Free Pizza & Ribs" "Home of the 2 for 1 Pizza Deal" "Home of the 24" Pizza" "Home of the Cheap Slice" "Home of the Gaint Jumbo Pizza Slices" "Home of the Big MEATY Pizza" "Home of the Late Night Slice" are some I and Google have read. ("Slice" being a classy shortcut for "piece of pizza".)

What are we home of? What sign would be on our homes? Before elections we see signs in front of homes supporting candidates, but usually the candidates themselves are not living there. Sometimes yard signs do proclaim to be home of a fan of a sports team or a student of a high school, but associations and membership signs don't match the emotion invested in a piece of dough and tomato sauce by the "Home of" pizza shops.

Matthew tells of the disciples being sent out to the lost sheep of Israel to preach the that the kingdom of heaven is near. Jesus instructs the disciples to find a worthy person and stay at the person's home, and let his peace rest on it. Now there's a sign for a home: Home of the Peace of God

The Best Peace is the One God Delivers.

Home of the Largest Peace

As you enter the home, give it your greeting. If the home is deserving, let your peace rest on it; if it is not, let your peace return to you. - Matthew 10:12-13

Hope God's Peace is Always Home at Your House,
