Journal Entry 1 by jennannej from Coronado, California USA on Sunday, January 27, 2013
I quite enjoyed this memoir about what it is to be a Christian and an artist and how they are related and unrelated.

Some of my favorite parts:

"We live in a world which believes that self-control can make a virtuous"

"We are all asked to do more than we can do."

"Jesus was not a theologian. He was God who told stories."

"Story was in no way an evasion of life, but a way of living life creatively instead of fearfully."

"Christianity… Is too wild and free for the timid."

Naming is one of the impulses behind all art; to give a name to the cosmos we see despite all the chaos.
