Because the fine arts serve to nourish the spirit of man and to reflect his relationship to God, they serve both as agents of the Gospel and as records of its work. By nature and integrity, therefore, the arts have an essential role in the propagation of the Gospel. David’s one desire — to behold the beauty of the Lord — is a statement of the Christian aesthetic making the pursuit of beauty an obligation not an option. We are so accustomed to thinking of beauty as merely decorative and ornamental that we forget that beauty is a moral necessity. God wrought beauty in the structure of the universe. Beauty is the highest form of righteousness.
