Imago Scriptura

My blog has been around for a long while now but it wasn’t until 2014 that it began to find it’s purpose. I was going through a very difficult period in life and ministry when a friend told me that I should pray the Psalms. After some initial reluctance, I read Psalm 1 and as I read those words, I remembered a photograph I took a while before at a local nature center of a tree growing out of the edge of a pond. It spoke to me of the words of Psalm 1 – “planted by began to intentionally look for the Psalms in my daily life which eventually led to sharing these photographs and reflections over the course of that year. Since that time I have continued to engage Scripture, my readings, and life in this way.
