Shadows of Divine Things

My Photo
Location: Texas, United States

This site is devoted to theological and philosophical investigations of the spiritual meanings of life, current events, music, spiritual growth, nature, and learning to be attuned to listening to the 'language of God.' The name of this blog comes from one of Jonathan Edwards's journals which he called 'Shadows of Divine Things,' and later renamed 'Images of Divine Things.' As a Christian I am continously on a spiritual journey to grow more into the image of Christ, to understand what it means to be crucified with Christ. To seek the truths of the Christian Faith is of upmost importance, and to know that any truths that are found outside of Christianity are present there because they ultimately point to God. I have an M.A. in theology and apologetics and I completed one year of graduate studies in Philosophy at Marquette University.

The Gatherings

Every other Friday or Saturday (which ever works best in all our schedules) I meet with two friends to eat, drink, smoke cigars or pipes, and discuss various theological and philosophical things, or books we are currently reading. These meetings have become a regular occurence over the last three or four months, and have sparked some very lively discussions.

The two friends I meet with are Clint and David. David actually has his own blogspot (though he has been a bit lax in posting lately) and Clint is a biologist (and bio-chemist as well). Clint also has a fanstatic collection of rare and antiquarian theology books, some of which he buys and then he actually restores/rebinds them in very nice leather bindings. He has a room set up in his house with all the binding tools and such to restore the books. He's quite good at it.

Here are some pics from our last meeting.

This is the whole 'gang.' As you are looking at the pic, Clint is on the far left, I'm in the middle and David is at the right.

This is Clint, pipe in hand, looking austere. He is looking at me in this pic that way because of some theological ideas I mentioned at our last gathering that kept him up all night thinking. I think he worries about me ; ) - and probably rightly so!

This is me looking at Clint's photo album of a trip he and his wife took to Italy. Can you see the jealousy written all over my face!

This is David with his newly 'buzzed' head. He's driving home a point in this pic. I think the haircut is actually helping him think more clearly now! ; )

This is the three of us after the discussions are over. See how wonderful theological discussions can be . . . The Theological Hounds
