  1. Thanks, Don. I tend to think those mammoth cathedrals were statements of the institutional church’s power and control more than they were glorifications of the Lord who came to us as a poor commoner. But, yes, it’s ironic how PBS loves to play classical music with Christian themes.

  2. Great reminder that everything in our lives can be to glorify God. The question I often ask myself will this bring me closer to God, would it please God…our desire to please Him will bring glory to Him…using all our gifts and talents for Him

  3. A great challenge to use our God given abilities to God’s glory. Culture can become a boogeyman when we each have to answer the call to redeem the world rather than abandon it to those who reject God.

  4. “We seldom realize, for example that our most private thoughts and emotions are not actually our own. For we think in terms of languages and images which we did not invent, but which were given to us by our society.”

    Nice article.

    GOD bless you.

  5. Thank you, Don. You are so right. After all, the gifts of this world come from God, not from man. I’m reminded of this prayer Jesus offered over his disciples.

    15 “I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one. 16 They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. 18 As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world.” John 17:15-18
