The Benefits of Creating Beauty

In small and large ways, when we create beauty - in our environment, relationships, music, cooking, poetry, and celebrations - we push back the effects of the Fall and express our hope for the new heaven and new earth that God promises.  When we give artful attention to detail, we point people to a truer and better reality.  When we offer beauty, we touch something in the human soul.  We remind others of who they are what they are made for.  We bring hope and inspiration.  This is a way of caring.
