Thoughts on a Friday

A twig covered with frost flakes

God is not an art critic who makes aesthetic judgments, nor is God a philosopher who issues metaphysical definitions or decrees.  Rather, God is more like a cantor who chants His Creation into existence and rejoices everlastingly over its beautiful harmony.  His song continues, and its melody moves and inspires humankind to restore beauty and harmony to a Creation that is fallen and misshapen.

Vigen Guroian in The Melody of Faith: Theology in an Orthodox Key quoted in The Christian Century, November 16, 2010
