New Series: Beguiled by Beauty
An early 6th century theologian described God as “beguiled by beauty.”
The Creator was lured by a longing for beauty and so set in motion a world of immense diversity and goodness. We were made for this Divine Goodness. We were made inherently worthy, not by our “doing,” but by our simply being. All things are beautiful–not by a standard of “pretty” as seen by our eyes, but by an essence of sacred worth that is sensed by the spirit.
This is the root and heart of compassion and justice.Practices of contemplation help us train our gaze to these deeper truths.
In this worship series we will dwell with the God of Divine Goodness,
deeply in love with us, and practice ways to return that love as we
fall more deeply in love with creation and with one another.
