Chew on This Awhile

From ReJesus by Michael Frost & Alan Hirsch:

“To say that we are all made in the image of God is to acknowledge that there are certain, special qualities of human nature that allow God to be made manifest in us. It is a statement about God’s love for humans but also a statement about the uniqueness and beauty of humans. A belief in the imago Dei is not a denial of the inherent sinfulness of all people. To deny such is not only heretical, it’s just plain ignorant. The human race continues to give myriad examples of our depravity and potential for evil. Rather, it recognizes that God’s image is so indelibly stamped on our nature that not even the fall can completely erase it.”

Musician. Composer. Recovering perfectionist. Minister-in-transition. Lover of puns. Hijacker of rock song references. Questioner of the status quo. I'm not really a rebel. Just a sincere Christ-follower with a thirst for significance that gets me into trouble. My quest has taken me over the fence of institutional Christianity. Here are some of my random thoughts along the way. Read along, join in the conversation. Just be nice.
