Art is Important
Art and Beauty provokes the inner part of man, the soul and spirit, in a way laws, philosophical systems, and programs cannot. The experience of viewing, participating in, Art allows one to catch a glimpse of heaven from our fallen state. It touches on one of those thin places in reality. Man sees through this translucent veil where the physical plane meets the spiritual plane and cannot help but long for his eternal home. All men know intuitively they are broken (whether they admit it or not) and see a glimmer of what they could be as the spiritual realm acts as kind of a mirror reflecting the ideal. Beauty sparks the imagination and practice of men to make their own thin places that aren't a dream, but a transforming reality.
