I Believe

Cover art for Davidson College Presbyterian Church’s 2018 Lent devotional; Oxford, MS, January 2018.

My artistic adventure this time was to craft an image related to DCPC’s Lent devotional theme, proclaimed by the organizers to be “I Believe.” Before I say more about what you see, I think it’s worth mentioning some bits about how we got here.

Me when I heard the theme: “Oh okay cool, yeah that makes a lot of sense for a devotional.” Me five minutes later: “Waiiit a minute, what does ‘I Believe’ actually look like?” Continue reading “I Believe”

Even Though

Adapted from a reflection on Psalm 27 for a joint campus ministry Advent devotional; Oxford, MS, November 2017. (See the original devo here.)

During the season of Advent, we hear a lot of “wait for the Lord!,” and this psalm certainly doesn’t leave that out. But as I reflected on the rest of it, I found one of the most striking parts to be the way the psalmist so explicitly names all of the things they’re up against.  Evildoers devouring flesh, adversaries and armies encamped. War and false witnesses breathing out violence…

And still, the confident claim…

I believe that I shall see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

More hope…I hope.

Mobile, AL, November 2015.

When I think about what’s happening in the world right now (things that have been happening for some time), “uncertainty” is a word that finds its way forward in my consciousness. It’s honestly probably not strong enough language for current events. I have a lot of thoughts (a handful of half-written-but-never-posted Facebook statuses prove it). As I’ve mentioned before, sometimes my visual explorations are just about asking questions. Feeling full of questions and not quite brave enough to venture toward an entirely blank cardboard canvas (sorry, no glue stick in this one), I decided to ask an old book page what it had to say.
