This web log is a place to conduct a conversation on the elusive nature or features of listening to and following God’s will. That is, it is concerned with the “how and why” of seeing with Eyes of Faith. Besides the “how and why” it is also about the “what.” What does one see in the world through Eyes of Faith? This component of the weblog is, alas, likely to be the preponderant content for some time. Seeing with eyes of faith is ultimately about viewing the world as a creature of a personal God.
Much of my frustration in the past couple of years as a newly ordained priest stems from the fact that I seem to be coming very late into a sea change in the church in the U.S. It's as if there were a great political convention, and I didn't arrive until after the principal candidate and the running mate were already nominated, and I knew from that that the party was headed for disaster in the real world.
