my card quotation

Posted on July 28, 2009 by Matt

If any of you have ever been given my business card you know that not only is it pretty sweet but there is a quotation on the back of it.  I am a fairly intentional and eloquent speaker, but the quotation on the back has only one of these traits, “intentionality.” Why, you may wonder, if I had the limited space of a business card would I desire to pure a non-eloquent quotation? The reason for that is the purpose of this entry.

“Seek that which is true and good and beautiful.” Two aspects of this sentence you will almost never find in my writings, coupling the cumbersome “that” and “which” together and separating three words with two “ands.” In explaining why I did this, I will likewise explain the quotation itself.

True Rest

Posted on July 24, 2009 by Matt

There is a difference between sleep and rest. You can easily be rested but not have sleep. Further you can sleep but not feel rested. While a healthy body requires both of these factors to flourish, there is something else that the human requires. She requires a “rest” that does not come about through sleep or from relaxing sore muscles and bones. This rest is found in complete surrender and trust in the LORD. This is true rest. Augustine said it quite perfectly; “You stir men to take pleasure in praising you for you have made us for yourself. Our hearts are restless oh Lord, until they rest in you.”

Of the many beauties that come about from reaching off into unknown countries and cultures the greatest is the conclusions one can make about the familiar.

The Risen LORD

Posted on April 15, 2009 by Matt

Since we recently celebrated the resurrection of Christ, it is fitting to write a few things about it.

People often ask me about the origins of Easter, why a rabbit is a symbol. Much like Christmas, Constantine in the 4th century changed the celebration days of the birth and resurrection of Christ to correspond with pagan holidays.
