movement five
















to mars and beyond

The things we are called to here at Mars Hill have helped me continue to flesh out my hermeneutic in way that is much more full than I could have ever imagined. We're being called into our created-ness. We’re being called to become the people we were born to be; back to Eden; back to our original states and our original hearts that can see and hear through the haze of evil and of this world. God's spirit calls us forth to live transformed lives, to be continually changed, and to live radically wild lives following a radically wild king. Because I see more than facts, I am able to see glory, majesty and authority everywhere. I attempt to see the face of God in all whom I encounter and I also attempt to see the face of God when I look in the mirror. And there is something about that that just isn’t right. It doesn’t seem fair that I could be allowed to reflect the glory of God. But I do. My face reflects the glory of God. While this may be a fact, it is much, much more – it is truth. Again facts can only change my mind, and only truth can change my heart; and it is the truth that sets me free.

I know him and since I'm coming to Mars Hill he mentioned you...at least I hope it was you he was talking about...if not... awkward... I heard you were on Prison Break too...my friend Claire worked on the show. N'way, I was just wondering if you were the same Blaine...
