Greetings, and welcome to Squinting through Fog (AKA The Fog Blog). My name is Cameron Lee, and my “day job” is Professor of Family Studies at Fuller Theological Seminary, a post I’ve held since 1986. I also serve as a teaching pastor, conduct marriage enrichment workshops, and direct a seminary-sponsored initiative designed to help get relationship tools and ideas into the hands of local congregations.
Here comes the disclaimer: this blog does not officially represent the views of either the seminary or the church. It began as a place to reflect and record my thoughts after the death of my father. Since then, these posts have evolved into a personal spiritual discipline: a kaleidoscopic mix of journal, essay, rant, and even the occasional commentary on movies or sports.
The name of the blog comes from Eugene Peterson’s paraphrase of 1 Cor 13:12 in The Message: “We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears…” The blog is thus devoted to attempts at faithful “squinting,” to exercising Christian imagination in the midst of the ambiguous journey we call life.
The writing has become something of a small ministry in its own right, for which I am grateful. If you like what you’ve read, you can support the ministry by subscribing (for free, of course!) to automatically receive future posts by email, or by referring others whom you think might be interested. You can also troll through the archives from previous months. The blog is public, so feel free to leave comments: I’d love to hear your thoughts.
If you wish to contact me directly, you can do so at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for visiting!
