First things: thank you for stopping by. This blog is an attempt to put to honest words some of the deepest musings of my mind and heart, and I’m thankful you’ve taken the time to read.
My name is Clay Anderson. I’m a married father of three, soon-to-be four. My wife and children are precious-beyond-precious to me, and my heart loves them with a love that I’ve found to be inexpressible.
Deeper still, though, is my love for a God who I find mysterious, frustrating, comforting, sobering, hard-to-find yet inescapable. I believe God to be the sole object of our deepest longings…even if we don’t realize it.
And that’s what this blog intends to be about. That ache, that tension, that groaning in our souls that finds glimmers of hope in the things of this world, yet remains dissatisfied.
Ever felt that way…or not? Do me a favor: offer your thoughts, share your experiences, challenge my thinking. My hope is to nurture conversation, especially around the big questions.
I invite your comments, and even—if you’d be interested—your posts. If something here resonates with you, then join me in this pursuit: I’d be over the moon to have you write a guest post.
These are foundational matters. And one of the reasons I write is to deny myself the opportunity to settle for less. As C. S . Lewis wrote, “We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.”
I want to find that which brings peace to my spirit, joy to my soul, love to my heart. Join me.
