Perhaps the role of those involved in the arts, then, is to awaken ourselves and others to beauty–in all its risk and richness. ~Luci Shaw
Let’s go all word wild.
Let’s bound over boundaries and
color outside the fence lines.
Let’s open up new spaces within ourselves
and dive in deep waters.
Let’s be reckless with richness
and leap into the light.
Let’s splash the page with color
and melt heaven to earth.
Let’s let our imaginations loose
and gallop with the Spirit.
Let’s wake up to
I ask—ask the God of our Master, Jesus Christ, the God of glory—to make you intelligent and discerning in knowing him personally, your eyes focused and clear, so that you can see exactly what it is he is calling you to do, grasp the immensity of this glorious way of life he has for his followers, oh, the utter extravagance of his work in us who trust him—endless energy, boundless strength. ~Ephesians 1:18-19 (Message)
