 "And I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains

I looked to the children, I drank from the fountains

There's more than one answer to these questions

Pointing me in a crooked line

And the less I seek my source for some definitive

The closer I am to fine, yeah"

Indigo Girls, Closer to Fine



This website is a set of curated lessons on various topics that speak to me about a covenantal journey with God.


I say "curated," because I've approached the content of these lessons like a museum curator. I've pulled images, stories, videos, songs, and commentary together, all-around a particular theme or concept. In doing so, I hope I've have created a seamless exploration of Spirit and self. Most of the content is not original to me, though I may add my own thoughts between pieces to tie them into a coherent message. 


Another word I used above is "covenantal," which is about a journey with God. The scriptures begin and end with God's relationship with humanity. Repeatedly, God seeks out someone to make a promise to and to receive a promise from. Fortunately for us, though humanity breaks that promise over and over again, God never does. Living into, living for, living up to that promise is the great project of my life.


The Indigo Girls sing about the questions that point us to a crooked line. There are two truths in these two lines. Life is about the questions more than answers and life is not a straight line. The lessons on this blog hold both of these truths close to the center. I hope these lessons are meaningful to you and that you use them to create meaningful experiences with others as you journey together in covenant with God.
