At church this morning, we sang the hymn “Jesus Loves Even Me.” I especially liked the following stanza:
“Though I forget Him, and wander away,
“Still He doth love me wherever I stray;
“Back to His dear loving arms I do flee,
“When I remember that Jesus loves me.”
A number of Christians may criticize that hymn for being too individualistic. I happen to like it, though. I think it’s important to remember that God loves each and every one of us. That doesn’t preclude the importance of helping other people, though.

My name is James Pate. This blog is about my journey. I read books. I watch movies and TV shows. I go to church. I try to find meaning. And, when I can’t do that, I just talk about stuff that I find interesting. I have degrees in fields of religious studies. I have an M.Phil. in the History of Biblical Interpretation from Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati, Ohio. I also have an M.A. in Hebrew Bible from Jewish Theological Seminary, an M.Div. from Harvard Divinity School, and a B.A. from DePauw University.
