very nice, jonny. we were in christchurch NZ (part of a 2 week visit, including mark pierson's "just worship" event). went to the christchurch art gallery and one of the exhibits was of recently acquired works. a local artist had taken the 1600 terms in the Thames & Hudson dictionary of art and put each one on the spine of a constructed book. these were all stacked (in jumbled order) on a loooong table. i thought that it was brilliant and of course connected it with your post just now.


Hi Jonny,

Thank you and the folk at grace for this. It has really made me think about our use of language and have just blogged about it here. http://mike-thornton.blogspot.com/2010/06/what-language-to-we-use-to-describe-god.html
