Any successful leader must first go through the house of humility...David r. Hicks.
It's not the critic who counts,not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled,or when the doer of deeds could have done better.The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena;Whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood;Who knows the great enthusiasms,the great devotions,and spends himself in a worthy cause;Who at the best,knows in the end the triumph of high achievement;and who…Continue

'The purpose of Christian art is to deepen our encounter with God. From the tiny to the monumental, from a piece of personal jewellery used for meditation to a massive stained glass window in a great cathedral, the function is the same: to catch the imagination, to open the heart and the mind, so that we may better hear the divine promptings' (Rowena Loverance)

One of the great tragedies of the world is to live an uninspired life, and here's the deal: nobody had ever inspired the human race the way that jesus did."The victory of jesus christ over the gods of greece & rome by the fourth century was responsiable for a massive and magnificent outpouring of creativity that is probably,without parallel,in the entire history of art." Colossians 1:15-20.The son is the (icon)greek/image of the invisiable god.
