Not an easy journey

There are no
safe paths in this
part of the world.
You are over the Edge
of the Wild now,
and in for
all sorts of fun.

Love still grows


The world is indeed full of peril and in it there are many dark places. But still there is much that is fair. And though in all lands, love is now mingled with grief, it still grows, perhaps, the greater.

–J. R. R. Tolkien

Called into a Story

Castle 3B

Christianity, in its true form, tells us that there is an Author and that he is good, the essence of all that is good and beautiful and true, for he is the source of all these things.

It tells us that he has set
our hearts’ longings within us,
for he has made us to live
in an Epic.

It warns that the truth is always in danger of being twisted and corrupted and stolen from us because there is a Villain in the Story who hates our hearts and wants to destroy us. It calls us up into a Story that is truer and deeper than any other, and assures us that there we will find the meaning of our lives.

–John Eldredge
