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.

Happy New Year!

There were so many things that happened in 2006, but here are a few highlights that stand out:

The biggest event: Getting a much needed job after several months of being unemployed.

The most enjoyable event: Getting to go to one of my best friend's wedding in Georgia.

The most exciting event: Getting to go to game one (1) of the NBA Finals of the Mavericks VS. The Heat, and sitting 2 rows from the floor near center court.

The most needed event: Finally finding a church home after a year of searching.

The saddest event: Losing our long time church home and having to begin a search for a new church home.

Best book I read: N.T. Wright's What Saint Paul Really Said. I read this for the second time in 2006 having already read it back in 1998. This, and few other titles by Wright, have been very thought changing for me.

Best non-fiction (and non-religious/theological) book I read: Ghost Rider: Travels on the Healing Road by Neil Peart. This was a book by the drummer of the rock band Rush detailing events of the death of his daughter and wife which led him to travel over 55,000 miles from Canada through the U.S. to Central America and back to Canada in an attempt to heal the pain of his loss.

Best television show: Lost (no contest on this one).

Best Movie: We did not see too many movies in the theatre in 2006 so this film is chosen from our DVD selections that we saw during the year, but the movie was not a "2006" movie per se (at least I do not think it was released in 2006). The movie is Napoleon Dynamite.

These are a tiny handul of things that stand out from 2006. So, what are your "stand out events" from 2006? Leave some in the comments sections if you feel inclined to do so, and Happy New Year!!
