Through Art

"God touches us through art. The mathematician is consigned to numbers. The biologist is restricted to organic matter. The philosopher uses only words.
The artist, on the other hand, is unrestricted in e x p r e s s i o n. The only limits are self-imposed.

"The picture that is worth a thousand words might also contain a hundred insights. The sculpture that represents only one natural figure might also represent a score of supernatural truths. The film, held on one reel, might reveal dozens of secrets about the world around us. The four minute song might contain a lifetime's worth of revelation about life and love. The moving narrative on the pages of a single book might open up a brand new landscape of meaning to us.

"God chooses the artistic handiwork of people to reveal Himself to us."

The saying goes, "A picture is worth a thousand words." A movie is composed of 24 pictures every seconds. If you figure that a movie is 100 minutes long, then it is worth 144 million words.

You'll sleep better tonight knowing that.

"Art is unthinkable without risk and spiritual self-sacrifice."

"I come here to speak poetry. It will always be in the grass. You will always have to bend down to hear it. It will always be too simple to discuss in large groups."
