Welcome!

This blog grows out of my conviction that every aspect of our lives is sacred and is to be nurtured and celebrated as a good gift of God. Most of the posts will be the sorts of things you would expect from a historian and worldview teacher, but some are likely to be a bit surprising. Since God created all things good, including all aspects of human life, everything is interesting and important from the perspective of a biblical worldview. Everything under the Sun and under Heaven is thus fair game here. I hope you find it interesting and enjoyable.

Paradoxes of the Incarnation


The Source of all things acquires something He did not have before—a human nature.
The Author of Life is born into the world.
The One who fills all of space and time is confined in a manger.
The all-powerful God becomes a helpless baby.
The Commander of the Armies of Heaven flees as a refugee from a petty tyrant.
The Word made flesh learns to speak.
The eternal, unchanging God changes and grows.
The Wisdom of God grows in wisdom.
The immortal One takes on mortality so that mortals can put on immortality.

May you be filled with wonder as we celebrate the coming of the Lord.
