is a transliteration of the Greek word, εγερσις, which has the meaning of being roused to life. Thus, it is my hope that what you find on this blog will empower, arouse, stimulate, excite, and animate your life--your soul, your spirit--the wholeness of who you are.

Early Christian Art

This is a 5th century book cover. This cover represents two of my pleasures in life: books and art. God in his wisdom uses many ways to tell His story. For the visual person, he uses images, pictures, written words, symbols. For the auditory person, he uses the reading aloud of the written story. For the kinesthetic person, he uses the feel of carved wood, the texture of inked manuscripts. All of which speak of a God who loves earthen beauty and uses it to tell what we need to know.
