This Must Be the Place

Reflections on Home

Milton Brasher-Cunningham

Nov/2015, 160 Pages, Paperback, 6 x 9

ISBN-13: 9780819232090



Connects the metaphor of home that runs through the stories of our faith with the deep desire to belong and to feel wanted.

The author writes, “One of the characters in Robert Frost’s ‘Death of a Hired Man’ says, ‘Home is that place where, when you go there, they have to let you in.’ I have found that place in my marriage, around our dining room table for Thursday Night Dinners, with friends who have helped me make a mosaic out of the shards of my fractured past. Home, for me, means to belong, to feel wanted.”

As a writer, chef, and minister, Brasher-Cunningham has spoken to churches, taught cooking classes, hosted dinners, and found as many ways as possible to get people together to talk about food and faith. That discussion turns often to what it means to live life together, which is an entry point to talk about what it means to feel at home together.

MILTON BRASHER-CUNNINGHAM is a writer, editor, chef, teacher, United Church of Christ minister, gardener, musician, husband, and keeper of Schnauzers, who lives with his wife, Ginger (also a United Church of Christ minister), in Guilford, Connecticut.
