I don’t usually do this, but I wanted to share what I wrote for the Nozomi Project blog last night. Thinking a lot this week about beauty!
“The world will be saved by beauty.” -Dostoevsky
Today in our staff meeting we talked about beauty. It’s really sad to go through a whole day and never stop and look at the beauty that surrounds us. Sometimes it’s really small things that are really, really beautiful. And sometimes it is big things. Our homework this week is to look for beautiful things we haven’t noticed before, and to take a picture of it on our cell phones to share by next week.
And we realized how very very fortunate we are to be in a place where we every day get to see broken things transformed into- something beautiful. Here is one example of transformation to beauty from our work this week. We pray for eyes to see much more of the beauty surrounding us. (You can follow our Nozomi blog here.
