I’m the guy with the threefold cord.
This is my favorite painting, and–incidentally–my original-and-now-current Gravatar. On a business trip to Chicago, I went to the Art Institute, and saw it for the first time at full, life-altering, scale. I’d never even heard of Bartolomeo Manfredi before that.
A commenter the other day called me a preacher. I want to be clear that I do not claim to be a pastor for any man or woman except those God put in my house. My interpretations of scripture–though I believe them to be sound–are not themselves scripture, and I do not hold anyone to account for them. In fact, what I write here is as much an investigation more than a proclamation.
Now go to church. There are people there that need your help.
