“We were made to enjoy music, to enjoy beautiful sunsets, to enjoy looking at the billows of the sea and to be thrilled with a rose that is bedecked with dew… Human beings are actually created for the transcendent, for the sublime, for the beautiful, for the truthful… and all of us are given the task of trying to make this world a little more hospitable to these beautiful things.” ― Desmond Tutu

    One of the sayings that was common among the faculty and student body of the Episcopal (Anglican)seminary I attended was,”The easilest way to get at the heart of a person's faith position is to ask, 'What is beauty?'”

    Truly, beauty, our regard for it (or lack) and active response to it, is a huge indicator or our conviction regarding what it means to be human and live an authentically human life.
