Shadows of Divine Things

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.

Holy Week

This is Holy Week which is the final week of Lent, and includes Palm Sunday (today), Maundy Thursday, and Good Friday.

On the sixth Sunday of Lent we commemorate Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Many services use palm leaves to commemorate this glorious event when people ushered Jesus into Jerusalem crying, "Hosanna to the Son of David; Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!" Traditionally the Gloria Laus (All Glory Laud and Honor...), written by Theodulf of Orleans, is sung in churches. This week let us remember the final week of our Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ, the Jewish Messiah who comes to save His people from their sins.

Prayer of Confession:

"Forgive us, God, when we forget the cost of your love. Forgive us, God, when we act as those who do not know you. Forgive us, God, when we fail to stand with you in your service. Give us a new heart and a right spirit, that we might live for you, to your glory." Amen.
