Coram Deo

As I scanned down to the end of a friend’s e-mail, concluding his signature were the words coram Deo. We live in a time of fascinating valedictions and closings to written communication. How uniquely interesting to see this Latin mystery—I was going to have to look this one up.

It turns out that coram Deo translates loosely as “in the presence of God.” In other words, my friend was affirming his allegiance to live in God’s presence, under His authority. How beautiful.
