New Series “Beguiled by Beauty”

Celebrate divine goodness and the inherent beauty of creation in this series based on Dr. Wendy Farley’s book, ‘Beguiled by Beauty: Cultivating a Life of Contemplation and Compassion.’
An early 6th-century theologian described God as “beguiled by beauty.” The Creator was lured by a longing for beauty and so set in motion a world of immense diversity and goodness. We were made for this Divine Goodness.
We were made inherently worthy, not by our “doing,” but by our simply being. All things are beautiful–not by a standard of “pretty” as seen by our eyes, but by an essence of sacred worth that is sensed by the spirit. This is the root and heart of compassion and justice. In this worship series, we will dwell with the God of Divine Goodness, deeply in love with us, and practice ways to return that love as we fall more deeply in love with creation and with one another.
