I just “stumbled upon” a new favorite Ikon

I was using stumble upon, and one of my categories is Eastern Orthodox Christianity (I’m not Orthodox, but I love a lot of their spirituality). I stumbled across an Ikon that I had never seen before.

Communion

Communion

I love the symbolism of the disciples approaching Christ for the Gifts. Its easy to forget that when we approach the sacrament, we approach Christ. We are partaking in the Sacrifice of Christ through the Body and the Blood. It is a Divine Gift. And I believe this Ikon shows that quite vividly.

I submitted something to digg.

I am curious to see how high i can get it in the listing.

I can’t f****** breathe.

Seriously, full blown allergies. GAH.

I’m gonna try playing games tomorrow, my wrists feel somewhat better. Nothing intense like wow, maybe just an hour or so of team fortress, to get back into it and get an idea of where the healing is.

This happens every few months, and i freak out like its the end of the world. I know, sad.

Anyway.

I joined a site today, tell you about it later.

I’m voting for John McCain

But I’m not really all that excited. I do like the idea of Nuclear power, but i have trouble electing someone for one damn topic. I guess I’m also voting against Obama’s inexperience, but i’m still not all that excited.

I’m gonna go vote on monday. Eh, sometimes democracy seems like a chore.

Prayer in the dark

The prayer/mantra I mentioned earlier has started to infiltrate my life. I find myself praying it at different times during the day. Especially in the dark after i turn the lights off to go to bed. It calms me.

I begin to think of the atonement. The Sacrifice of Christ. In the past I have focused on the physical Man on the Cross. The 5 Wounds of Christ. Traditional thoughts. But Occasionally my thoughts have drifted to the more metaphysical aspects.

There is One Christ, but in my mind I often see two aspects. The Physical Man, the carpenter from Nazareth. The Teacher, the Rabbi. Then There is the Metaphysical Christus. The Eternal Deity, who is both One God and the Son of God. A member of the Trinity, yet the Wholeness of Divinity. The Godman.

At the Incarnation, he took on our nature, the nature of a human being. He is still a man. He will always be a man. He is not only my Father and Creator, He is my Brother.

What happened to the Godman on Calvary? There are many thoughts on this topic, but very little is comprehendable in our limited minds. Did God Die? Obviously a man died, but did God die? God is immortal, however His Divinity and His Humanity are intermingled. He is One being, Godman. Not God and man, but Godman, a complete entity.

Theologians have twisted themselves up over this topic for centuries, I will not solve it in the darkness before bed (no one will), but to ponder it is to dwell on my God, and to draw near to him, that is always a good thing.

Christian Meditation serves a specific purpose. We are not emptying our minds. We are focusing it. May we draw near to him in prayer and meditation, and may we seek to become his Mirrors.

BORRRRED

I don’t really know what to do with myself half the time.

entertain me with thy witty comments
