Why name the site

I couldn't say it better thus the quote by Eugene Peterson.  God is the beginning point, our entrance to everything our hearts truly desire.

In our foolishness, we often don't see that.  Like the bumper sticker I saw the other day:  "It's all about me."

But it is not -- It's about God, all about God first, then our foolish little eyes have the opportunity to actually see life as it is.

First, God.  God is the subject of life.  God is foundational for living.  If we don't have a sense of the primacy of God, we will never get it right, get life right, get our lives right.  Not God at the margins; not God as an option; not God on the weekends.  God at center and circumference; God first and last; God, God, God.

(The Message, Introduction to Genesis, Eugene Peterson, p19)
