Beauty in the Bible

We've been going through an amazing Sunday school class on beauty and the arts. (You can read some about it here.) Our week on "story" was especially inspiring. It's been great. :-)

This past week we also got an awesome sermon on beauty! You should check it out!
Beauty in the Bible by Pastor Tuuri

I've been thinking about this a lot. I went back and read a post I did in February, Modern Mediocrity in Christian Art. I think its all mulling around still. There are so many interesting things to read on the subject...and frankly, I feel pretty dumb.

The main thing I understand is...Christians should take the arts seriously! (And that includes writing, by the way.)

So yeah...

That was an AMAZING sermon.

It was a good sermon! I liked that he highlighted how important beauty is to God and it's not good enough for things to merely be 'functional'... they should be beautiful, too!

Which means I need to decide what pictures to put up in our bathroom so that it's not quite so bare...
