"Literature, painting, music--the most basic lesson that all art teaches us is to stop, look, and listen to life on this planet, including our own lives, as a vastly richer, deeper, more mysterious business than most of the time it ever occurs to us to suspect as we bumble along from day to day on automatic pilot. In a world that for the most part steers clear of the whole idea of holiness, art is one of the few places left where we can speak to each other of holy things." --Frederick BuechnerMy favorite bits are:
vastly richer, deeper, more mysterious business
art is one of the few places left where we can speak to each other of holy thingsI want to be the sort of theologian who remembers and prioritizes such things.
