An Experiment

III Kingdoms 19:11-12
...and behold, the Lord will pass by, and before the Lord, a great and powerful wind will be rending the mountains and shattering the rocks; but the Lord will not be in the wind. After the wind, an earthquake, but the Lord will not be in the earthquake. After the earthquake, there will be a fire, but the Lord will not be in the fire. After the fire, there will be a sound of a gentle breeze, and the Lord will be there.

Many of you are probably familiar with the Nie Nie Dialogues, if not, you really need to go check her out. If you are, then you have probably seen Nie's latest project, based on this really amazing book. Mary and I have decided to do a similar project, taking one photo a day and posting our Days of Grace here. Our twist, a look at God in daily life. As we leave the great feast of Theophany, God's revelation of His Son to the world, Mary and I will attempt to capture in images the ways in which He is revealed to all of us in the everyday. The focus of our photos will be the daily moments we see and experience God, some of them more obvious than others. We will not communicate with each other about the subject of our photos before posting, but will simply take a picture each day that chronicles living in the year of grace of our Lord. Through these images we hope to capture a taste of the rhythm found within the Orthodox life, and inspire ourselves and others to seek the Lord in the sound of the gentle breeze.
