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 and marriage and family life educator, teaching Bible classes, preaching, and working with individuals and couples to strengthen their relationships.
Here comes the disclaimer: this blog does not officially represent the views of either the seminary or the church where I teach. 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 minor ministry in its own right, for which I am grateful. Posts normally go up every Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday. If you like what you’ve read, you can support the ministry by subscribing to automatically receive future posts by email — for free, of course! — or by referring others whom you think might be interested. You can also explore 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 email@example.com.
Thanks for visiting!
P.S.: While the coronavirus pandemic rages on, I have decided to dedicate Sunday posts to words of encouragement. I have categorized these under what I call “The Hope Project,” so that they can be found as a group. May we as believers learn to be living witnesses to the hope of the gospel, even and especially in these trying times.
