Epic Dialogue (ED) is about addressing how to face life, amid its challenges, knowing that there is a purpose.  ED is also about searching and seeking to reveal realities that have been obscured with life and its twists and turns.  Life is like a road we travel, and we know that roads have pot holes, bends, highs and lows, and even have troublesome points. We also know that many pass-on on roads annually as do many in life itself.  So that is the metaphor of a road.

During our lifespan, we cognitively acquire ideas combined with what we call knowledge, then hence, creates the very notions in our lives that influence our thinking.  Combined with the road’s experiences then together they become a resource.  It is the expectation in Epic Dialogue to flesh-out concepts and knowledge-points that undergird notions in order to arrive at the timeless purpose to be realized.

Life, as we know it, is challenging, but it does not have to be.  Living with a purpose and knowing that purpose, is life changing.  Realizing the covenant that has been set before you, is only the beginning of seeing life differently and realizing, that it will never be the same.  It is believed that a person changes by having knowledge of life’s purpose.  Every action is deemed important so long as it has a cause and a beginning.

Apologetical approach to pointing to cosmological, teleological, and moral arguments about the existence of a God are a pinnacle.  It is the very existence of God from which any acknowledgement of grace could subsist.   Grace, within that purpose of life, is instrumental to bringing about the personal change.  At times grace is misunderstood, may be even taken for granted.  Grace is precious!  The personal regeneration that comes with realizing that life’s purpose is truly is beyond the here and now allows a new vision,  “a brief moment grace has been shown from the Lord our God, to leave us an escaped remnant and to give us a peg in His holy place, that our God may enlighten our eyes and grant us a little reviving . . .” [Ezra 9:8] (nasb)  By living knowing the purpose of grace, then one can appreciate when the Word states: “Do not be carried away by varied and strange teachings; for it is good for the heart to be strengthened by grace,. . .” [Heb 13:9] (nasb) Epic Dialogue is about a dialogue into the topics of the notions that address our lives under scored by the Living Word.

Knowledge is ever so increasing almost at the speed of light.  Understanding the Word and what has been passed down through the ages in it is a crucial step to better realize our purpose.  We delve into the Word, as broken bread, to inspire a better understanding of God's inherent purpose for which we all live.  Only through the Word can there be that needed awareness. So many fruitless efforts divert from the truth.  While the Word is a sword that opens the eyes to the truth, we note what scripture begins to reveal, that “The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know. . .” [John 17:22] (nasb)  As such, the living Word enlightens one’s true purpose.   Notions worthy of dialogue, providing a discourse on the basis of faith, course of life, and our humanity.

Road of Life

There are twists and turns on the road of life.  With each twist and turn, doubt and questioned expectations arise.  Handling those often leads one to be immediately focused for instant results.  Then the here and now perspective of life overtakes a person’s focus.  Unbeknownst to all, there is a meaningful intention with every day one faces.  While not every road one chooses ends as expected.  Through the many roads one takes in life a journey unfolds, altogether, in the person’s life.  Acknowledging the covenant makes the combinations of roads altogether worth living.   Philosophical ideas, concepts of logic, epistemological views on faith and a deity’s existence, among a few, presents forces, on either side of the road of life that will posture to impinge and challenge our life's journey. But, there has been a line set before us to acknowledge,  “. . . Thus says the Lord, “Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not the mighty man boast of his might, let not a rich man boast of his riches; but let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord who exercises lovingkindness, justice and righteousness . . ..”   [Jeremiah 9:23-24](nasb)  Trying to explain the eternal with epistemological views ingrained in the here and now and hubris ladened eschatological views direly misses fulcrum of life.

Life Resource

Epic Dialogue is intended as a resource and a process to inspire a pursuit into and shed light on, God's eternally intended covenant.  "For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world;. . ." [John 3:17] (kjv)  Also, that “. . . the mystery which has been hidden from the past ages and generations, but has now been manifested to His saints, to whom God willed to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. . .” [Col. 1:26-27]  As the Word is delved into, the expectation is to present a dialogue allowing for discourse on faith, life, heaven, and religions -  including life changing notions that will help readers seek Gods eternal truths toward the covenanted purpose in their life - sort of providing broken bread that feeds the soul.

Timeless Purpose

Through the passing of ageless time teachings passed down through God's Word, lives are sown in a seamless line.  Living newly aware of the foretold destiny brings endless heartfelt change.  That is what has been expected for long.  Knowing of the covenant and purpose, clears the path for a new life and a purposeful perspective.  A worthy word to consider is, "that the hearts  may be encouraged, having been knit together in love, and attaining to all the wealth that comes from the full assurance of understanding,  resulting in a true knowledge of God’s mystery, that is, Christ Himself,. .” [Col. 2:2] (nasb) Therefore,  “so that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.” [John 17:26](nasb) And, Jesus did declare.
