Blue Like Jazz

My friend, David Heska, just sent some quotes from Blue Like Jazz and I really liked this last one he sent:

"I can no more understand the totality of God than the pancake I made for breakfast understands the complexity of me."

So maybe it's not quite fair because we are made in the image of God and the pancake is not made in the image of us but it gets the point across! (Just don't use that as an excuse to not dive in deep and read some great theology by the likes of Wayne Grudem!)

Sometimes I make a mean man-shaped pancake. My favourite word in the title is "jazz"

well, well, well Mr. Mark Smith...its has been awhile. If you are so kind as to remeber a old heritage ping-pong adversary...that would be me! I have a quick question, but i also wanted to say congrats on graduation and the whole youth pastor thing there, thats pretty sweet.

In regards to your most recent post on Blue Like Jazz...do you think their is a point where attempting and striving to understand god from our limited perspective is actually a hinderance to ones life and/or faith?

...which could also lead into several other veins of thought...but if you have a moment i would curious to know what your inital thoghts are.

take it easy man,
an old friend, long lost
