"To participate in beauty is to come into
the presence of the Holy." —John O'Donnohue
Now more than ever, the Church needs artists
who can image the Word and open hearts and lives to beauty. The world needs poets, prophets and painters who can imagine the world made new.
As we gather to worship, we gather around the central signs, stories and symbols of our faith: a pool, a book, a table set with bread and cup. We gather around ordinary things which become for us holy washing, holy Word, and holy feast.
We need those who can take ordinary things and create holy signs, symbols and spaces which invite us to see with transfigured eyes; which invite us into Holy Presence.
