Shadows of Divine Things

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.

"A Pan, A Comb, Perhaps a Cat"

The big celebrity talk in the U.S. (and maybe around the world) is the wedding of Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise. Cruise, a staunch Scientologists and Holmes who was raised Roman Catholic have chosen to have a Scientology wedding. The interesting thing about this is that back in the 1950's when Ron L. Hubbard was dreaming up Scientology, he took the time to develop a wedding ceremony which included several sets of vows for couples to select.

One such selection of vows has the husband promising his wife to provide her with, ". . . a pan, a comb, and perhaps a cat." Huh!! What a combination! I guess the pan is for cooking, typical 50's stereotype of the all American housewife, the comb is so she can groom herself to perfection, but what I don't get is the cat. A cat? What the heck is that for? Maybe this might clear the cat issue up . . . Here's a sweet little kitty named Conan that might go well in the Cruise household . . .
