Richard Beck posted this reflection of the woman who anointed Jesus’ feet with her hair and the idea of a Christian aesthetic. It’s inspiring.
From the blog:
More and more, I’ve come to describe my faith in similar terms, in aesthetic terms. Some things in the world–big global things and small things I notice during the day–I find beautiful. Other things I find ugly. And more, I try to live in a beautiful way. And in a way that has artistic integrity. And behind all these judgments is an aesthetic that is distinctively Christian.
