Ken Medema, blind songwriter wrote the powerful words of a song called “If this is not a Place” which is so fitting to the message of what the family of God should be.

“If this is not a place where tears are understood,

Then where shall I go to cry?

And if this is not a place where my spirit can take wings,

Then where shall I go to fly?

I don’t need another place for tryin’ to impress you

With just how good and virtuous I am, no, no, no

I don’t need another place for always being’ on top of things

Everybody knows that it’s a sham.

I don’t need another place for always wearin’ smiles

Even when it’s not the way I feel.

I don’t need another place to mouth the same old platitudes

Everybody knows that it’s not real.

So if this is not a place where my questions can be asked,

Then where shall I go to seek?

And if this is not a place where my heart cry can be heard,

Where, tell me where, shall I go to speak?

So if this is not a place where tears are understood,

Where shall I go, where shall I go to fly?”
