The Receiving End of the Violence of Grace
“The books or the music in which we thought the beauty was located will betray us if we trust to them; it was not in them, it only came through them, and what came through was a longing…For they are not the thing itself; they are only the scent of a flower we have not found, the echo of a tune we have not heard, news from a country we have never yet visited.”
You know how artists can be with their titles and all. Sheesh. Inspired by the art and writing of Makoto Fujimura and C.S. Lewis.
