Mining Secrets for the Imago-Dei
Hey folks! I need your help!
We've been talking a lot in class lately about how mankind was created in God's image. We're not just looking at the biblical / theological data; we're also trying to understand what that looks like in people's lives. My assignment for this coming week is to see how real people think about the image of God in man.
I suspect that few of us sit around pondering questions like this, but I'll bet that most of us do think deeply about life - about things we love, or hate, or fear the most. Interestingly, we often tend to keep these deep thoughts hidden from others. Secrets can be a wonderful window into the human soul, revealing what we think about God and ourselves...
So I'd like to try mining some secrets, and that's where you come in. Here's how you can help me:
- take a few minutes and look at Post Secret. This is a fascinating little site where people anonymously send in postcards that reveal a deep dark secret they've never told anyone. Look closely and you can learn a lot about what makes people tick.
- pick one postcard that moves you the most (either in a Yesss! or Nooo! sort of way). Right-click on the postcard image and copy the link location (or, if you don't know how to do that, just jot down the text).
- leave a brief anonymous comment on this post telling me:
a) which postcard you selected (link or text)
b) why (ie. what grabbed you about this particular card)
c) (opt) what you think it reveals about the author's heart
- (opt) email this link to a friend or two and invite them to participate as well. If you are a blogger, please consider linking to this post or "tagging" some of your blogster friends to participate.
Thanks for all your help!
