Hidden Glory: the life of God in the mundane
This is a talk I gave to Hillsdale College's InterVarsity chapter during the regular Thursday night worship gathering "Soma." Using Luke 2:52 as my starting point, I explore the obscurity of Christ's life in the thirty years before he began his public ministry, and what that teaches us about the presence of God's glory in the mundane day-to-day grind of our lives. On this basis, I encourage the students to continue to be faithful and grow in love and obedience regardless of whether or not they "feel" God's presence, because they can be assured that's he's there.
