The Faith Seeking Understanding Project, my personal journey towards a deeper knowledge of and intimacy with God, the cosmos, humanity and myself through thoughts, words and (occasionally) images, is a series of [hopefully] daily reflections I’m writing (beginning 06 Dec 2018) with the purpose of publishing something on a regular basis for others to read, either here, at joncarllewis.com or among my writings at Medium.com. Below is a list of articles I have written in the series so far.

An Introduction
