A Note About Breaking the Sea Ministries
The name of my ministry and journal is taken from the following quotation, attributed to Franz Kafka:
"If the book we are reading does not wake us, as with a fist hammering on our skulls, then why do we read it? A book must be an ice axe to break the sea frozen inside us."
I feel this way both about the books I write, and those I read. But I also think this is true of a life transformed by Christ. Our faith should be the "ice axe" that breaks our frozen places as we're awakened by the Spirit's nudging, prodding, or - dare I say it? - hammering of us into the image of the Almighty.
What is Breaking the Sea? It's my attempt at listening to how God might have me use the gifts and talents He's given me for His glory and for the good of those He loves. Which is everyone.
I promise more information will be coming shortly; I hope to launch the first part of the ministry's vision in December or January. I'll have several journal posts then about how the Lord brought me here, to this project - at times stubborn, at times unwilling, at times doubtful, walking in imperfect obedience to His calling for my life.
I hope you'll stick around for the story.
