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.

What's In a Name?

My family found out yesterday that in my home town they are building a new Middle School. The city is taking votes from those involved in education for the name of the new school and my step-father’s name is in the top three candidates. You can see the article here.

He taught grade school for 47 years, was voted teacher of the year two times, and the Mayor declared a specific day (back in 1980) to be called “Russell McClure” day. He married my mother in 1975 when I was ten years old, and he had a tremendous influence on my own education (especially reading and writing). He died two years ago. We are honored to find out that his name is a candidate for the name of the new school.
