Knowing God in the depths isn’t easy. And putting what it is we find into words is even harder. Talk about God by its very definition stretches language beyond its limits, as we attempt to describe infinite truths in very finite words.
This series will explore all of these themes, not only knowing God, but also our need and inability to put this knowledge into words and actions. It won’t be a how-to guide — I most certainly am unqualified for that — but I hope it will at least provide something of a map to help your own journeys of life and faith.
