My first impression was that she chose a great name for her blog, one that would lend itself well to emphasizing truth and grace together (cf. John 1:14 and John 1:17). Her January 10 post confirms that impression: Loving God is Living the Truth. “The call to love God with all of ourselves is actually a call to live in a way that corresponds to reality,” she writes, adding,
Since “that which corresponds to reality” is the definition of truth, this means that fundamentally, God is calling us to live truth. As Psalm 51:6 says, “Behold, you delight in truth in the inward being, and you teach me wisdom in the secret heart.”
That short statement strikes me as eminently philosophical, theological, and practical, all at the same time. You don’t find that often. Of course you’ll want to read the rest of the post to catch the full context.
Elizabeth Sunshine is a gifted poet (also here), an astute social observer, and a thinker. And as should be obvious by now, she is also an outstanding new blogger.
