Back at Multnomah, my friends and I enjoyed nothing more than sitting around a dorm room for hours on end talking about, as we called it, “God, the Bible, and stuff”. What fantastic memories! It wasn’t just “theology” — it was Applied Bible Dynamics. We just wanted to know how to LOVE GOD when tempted with immature diversions. As one buddy put it: “I don’t need to know any more about WHAT I’m supposed to do; I just need to know HOW I’m supposed to do it.”

Those late-night conversations still shape me today, so I thought this would be a place to recapture some of that invigorating dialogue.

“Study of an Old Man” by Jan Lievens, circa 1630

This picture has always captivated me. In a quirky way, it represents what I aspire to become, someday: a wisened, weathered, devout man of God, still looking up to the Light, in humble resolute dependence. The artist, Jan Lievens, was a devout man of God himself (at least in his older life, from what I can tell from his other paintings [more here]). He was also a friend and colleague of Rembrandt, and the two men influenced each others styles. (Lievens’ Lamentation of Christ — another striking work of art — may have been painted around the same time as his Old Man.)
