“nor will they say, ‘look, here it is!’ or ‘there it is!’ for, in fact, the kingdom of God is among you” (luke 17:21).
“at its heart most theology, like most fiction, is essentially autobiography,” frederick buechner writes. “that is to say, i cannot talk about God or sin or grace, for example, without at the same time talking about those parts of my own experience where these ideas became compelling and real.”
hands&feet began with the belief that if we’re faithful to attend to our own stories, somehow we’re faithfully attending to the way in which God is revealing Himself to the world.
using everyday stories from my own life, hands&feet is where i try to capture the ways in which God’s Kingdom has shown up in my life. how He has provided clarity for my questions in everyday experiences.
some of these experiences were incredibly difficult. some are painfully honest accounts of the valleys of my life and the lives of those closest to me. others are quite a bit brighter. ways in which God has shown up and turned my life on its head, fulfilling the dreams of my heart in ways i never thought possible.
my hope is that the over-arching story all of these experiences provides a clearer picture of the One who’s called Immanuel, and His in-breaking Kingdom, revealed through His Word and everyday life.
thanks for reading. it means so much.
grace & peace,
