At Home He's a Tourist

He fills his head with culture/ He gives himself an ulcer.

A guest preacher gave an interesting talk this morning about beauty. He began by saying that the reason the Bible is written largely as narrative or poetry rather than as systematic theology is that the former literary forms better convey the beauty of God. He then lamented the fact that the Church "abandoned the arts to the devil." Of course, he was driving this point home in a church building almost completely devoid of the ornamental. True, the congregation is only renting the space from the Seventh Day Adventists, but even if they had their own church I don't think it would be decorated, Calvinists being notoriously iconoclastic ("Four bare walls and a sermon.")

A couple of more hours of Baldur's Gate II this afternoon. I'm addicted!
