I'm not just Me- I'm You

I am an Individual.I am Matt. I am Matthew [Adam] Miller.

I dress a peculiar way-

My personality is my own (full of awkward anticipation)-

and my hair is me.

But I resign my individuality. I am a collaborator. I am a part of a community. I have a purpose, but it is not simply my own.

To dream my own dreams is to live in my own lonely world. To dream with people is to participate in the restoration of the world- corporeally and incorporeally.

I am not just me...I am you.

Me as You

image Paintings I did for church!

It's to serve as a reminder about community. Christianity, this whole Jesus thing, is not about me and my beliefs. It's more along the lines of a people who are living and learning together what it means to love God, and love people.

And it's about the whole city, not just that building in which you gather.

It's about the city, the people living in it and making it. It's about the homeless man sitting next to you at the bus stop, and the snooty rich man driving his fancy car as he passes you on the wrong side of the road, and that girl that you like, and the neighbor two doors down, and the coworker who couldn't imagine working without, and the 'friend' you would rather not be around, and the boss you may or may not like, and finding Jesus in every one of them.

I Am Community...

This is an illustration that I did in collaboration with Nate Ledbetter. He has a vision for community, and he wanted to represent the idea of community visually. We met several months ago through several mutual friends. Since then our friendship has grown little by little.

There is talk of further collaboration in the future with more ideas and thoughts on community. Stay tuned...
