Thinking and still unsure… Learning and realizing how much there is I don’t know.

What makes me tick?

I have one great passion that fuels and shapes all my other passions in life… that passion is God. I love both the practical and the immaterial aspect of theology and philosophy. I thirst for more than I will ever be able to drink, but I reject the stagnate pools of “easy answers,” “Sunday school theology,” and “cookie cutter apologetics.” I believe if God is infinite, and transcendent then understanding who he is cannot be summed up in neat bumper sticker statements. “It would indeed be terrifying to worship a God we could figure out. The enigmas, mysteries, and antinomies of God are what make him God. Without these, he would be just a cool guy” (Kara Powell.) I believe within real faith there is room for both doubt and uncertainties. And lastly I believe the Bible sets strong precedent to ask those hard questions of God… although like in Jobs case we may never get an answer.

    Would you be willing to give permission, if we cited you, to use your communion art that you posted, for a church bulletin cover?

    Thanks!

  3. I’ve enjoyed reading some of your reflections… thanks for the openness, willingness to leave the open questions open and to move in the direction of faith when there is no or lack of clarity… very refreshing!

  4. Greetings. I just discovered your blog. I was searching for art work for a post I’d just completed on Psalm 51 called “The Secret Heart.” The search took to art you had posted. It gave me no indication about copyright and it fits the piece perfectly. The piece is an exegesis of David’s wrenching prayer, similar to Lady Macbeth – “Out, damn spot!” after Nathan has confronted him the truth of his conspiracy to kill Uriah, and the deliverance that comes from a heart deeper than one’s secret heart. I like what I read here! Let’s stay in touch.
