(In The Life Of The Church)
UBC Rock and Roll Album
In light of the monumental achievement I’d like to say a few words about Jamie.
Jamie is a great theologian. theology is historical. It can be pieced together systematically, but my favorite kind of theology is creative theology. Creative theology in my mind takes the tradition into account, understands the rules of the game and then says something beautiful in light of past, present and future. Good theologians do theology for today. Jamie does that.
Jamie is a great lyricist. I’ve tried to love poetry my whole life. I’m more of a Miller Lite and Green Bay Packers guy. That being said I think I know enough to know what I’m not good at, so that I can marvel at it when I see it. Finding a perfect word that unlocks meaning placed along side other perfect words which as a whole become the lyrics of a song … well that’s like … well … I’ve already established that I’m not a poet, but the point is Jamie would have found the perfect simile there. Also just go listen to other Christian music, then you’ll know what I mean.
Jamie is a great pastor. I think all of us that pastor at UBC have different gifts. Sometimes those blend together in similarity. In some ways Jamie and I couldn’t be more opposite. I think that makes the worship experience diverse. He understands and is sensitive to needs and themes that I can only comprehend intellectually. I’m grateful for ying to my yang.
Jamie is a great intellect. I’m not sure i’m using that word correctly, but you know what I mean. I love going into Jamie’s office and striking up conversations about futurism, cultural movements, ideas, theology, philosophy, and everything that isn’t sports. In all these things Jamie will bring an “A” game and if I listen closely I usually learn something pretty interesting.
Jamie is a great human. I don’t think I know many other people who think so hard about how to care for other people.
We will be having our town hall this Sunday after church. By way of motivation, we have an initial sketch of the building completed.
