Beauty is not a luxury, it is essential. We need it to help counteract the relentless machinations of the world’s systems and the many human manipulations that push against our fervent hope for communities where shalom prevails. Beauty renews our hope. Beauty is one of the transcendentals that our Maker has built into our world and into our lives, always available if we have eyes to see it. With a short passage from Peter Kreeft’s book, The Wisdom of the Heart, Stephanie shares the importance of looking for beauty and stopping to appreciate it anywhere we find it.
