Beauty Spreads the Gospel
Having grown up in the mountains, I'm always a little uncomfortable with flat land. Last week I went to a "convocation" with a lot of priests on the banks of the Choptank River. I found the flatness attractive for a while. (Clicking on picture enlarges it)
One of the presentations at the meeting that interested me was about the effectiveness of using beauty to attract people to Jesus and his Gospel. Beauty opens our hearts in a way that a reasoned presentation does not. I know I felt drawn into God by the natural beauty of the area.
