Over this summer, I am studying the glory and love of God. (It’s a bit more focused than that, don’t worry – otherwise that would be a fairly big topic!)
One thing I’ve realised is that God’s ‘glory’ and ‘beauty’ are inseparable – in fact, God’s glory is his beauty, it’s a profoundly attractive quality which is the origin of everything that is beautiful in creation (from sunsets to love). Everything in creation should be understood through divine glory – its significance only makes sense as a reflection of God’s beauty. Furthermore, I’m convinced that we know beauty in the face of Christ – that true beauty is defined by the cross.
I’ve decided to start this blog to share my reflections on this.
