Miroslav Volf encourages us to see beyond our normal ways of seeing.
QUESTION FOR REFLECTION
- To the question “Can you find beauty in a rooting dog?,” Volf responds, “It is a spiritual question, a question of the character of one’s soul.” Volf’s relates a story about his mother swinging on tree branches and her spiritual sensitivity. Volf says that his mother told him “the most important decisions in the world are made in each person’s heart to see beauty.” How can seeing beauty in the other help us to make important decisions? How can we learn to see beauty where beauty is difficult to see?
