Some have said that Psalm 19 is the most beautiful in the Psalter. If so, how fitting that we see that beauty because of light. God’s commands are radiant! We’ve been examining the various terms in Psalm 19 about God’s Word. Today we come to the second half of verse

The Unlikely Power of Beauty

Beauty is one of God’s gifts to the world. We’ve written about beauty lots of times. A couple of recent posts were How to Disciple a Nation with a Paintbrush and Art for the Community’s Sake: Christians Using Art to Shape the Culture. I can’t help thinking about something Dr. Larry Ward

WANTED: God’s Fashion Designers

“Can a Christian be a fashion designer?” That question was put to me recently after I taught a session on worldview and life work to a group of young Christians in Chile. The young inquirer told me she loved to design clothes and wanted to be a fashion designer. Could she

WHO AM I to Judge Pole Dancing Classes for Children?

Is beauty really “in the eye of the beholder”? We are repeatedly assured that there is no objective standard by which to judge art. Art is a “level playing field,” they tell us. Value, like taste, is culturally and individually defined. To this way of thinking, it’s prosaic at best
