The Beauty of God in Nature and Music

 In nature (tonight's sunset) …

... and in music (an upcoming organ concert in Richmond). 

The great Jonathan Edwards once remarked that beauty is, more than any other thing, what defines God's divinity. "To become a Christian is to become alive to beauty." It's too bad I'm a low-church evangelical. How I would enjoy meeting with God in a great cathedral like the ones Becky and I used to visit in Europe. 

"Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful, for beauty is God's handwriting." Ralph Waldo Emerson.
