Covering my Head

As Christians, we have brilliant news to share. Every person, from each culture and country, can have hope and freedom. Their sins are forgiven and everything that causes pain and destruction has been overcome. It is incredible, but Jesus victory over sin and darkness took place a long time ago.

There are also paradoxes and enigmas that exist within God and are captured in the oxymorons that describe Him. My hope is that by understanding more about God we can find encouragement for our double lives and the tensions we experience.
