2017 Litfin photoBryan believes in the power of words through scholarly discourse to change the world for good. As a theologian, he sees how this reflects God’s nature. God the Father sent forth Jesus Christ, his Word, to speak truth and testify about who God is. The Holy Spirit is the “Breath” by which God speaks. When we humans use words—whether written or spoken—we participate in the dynamic life of the Holy Trinity. What a privilege it is to use language to communicate about God! Let us all send forth words of truth, goodness, and beauty wherever we can in the world.
