“God expresses Himself through creation and beauty. His beauty surrounds us, and the more we grow in God’s grace, the more we recognize His beauty in the world around us . . .
“God’s saints can see His beauty in everything. Once we welcome the presence of God into our awareness, the world becomes alive with unspeakable beauty . . .
“Dr. Wendy Wright says, ‘The absence of beauty is a profound form of deprivation.’ Studies have shown that people deprived of beauty turn to violence. Too many people go through life deprived of beauty . . .
“Dostoevsky meant all of this and more when he said, ‘Beauty will save the world.’ Every retreat at Laity Lodge brings as much beauty to guests as their hearts will allow. God is the source of all beauty, and we can never get enough of God.”
Still soaking this weekend in the beauty of Laity Lodge
with friends from The High Calling,
Welcome to Still Saturday where we pause after a busy week, move in quiet pilgrimage, maybe linger a while in some still place, and soak in the beauty of images and words. We’d love for you to join us. Get the details on the left, grab your favorite button, and link up below. We all love to hear if something especially speaks to your heart, but please don’t feel pressured to comment. Simply take some time to gaze long and drink deep.
