I've been doing a lot of school-related reading - I have to finish the summer reading books before I test the students on them in three weeks, after all! It's enjoyable reading, as is the reading of the works we'll be doing in class to start the year.
But I've been missing out on spiritual reading.
I tried some mystical Franciscan poetry, but found it hard to follow after reading all that school related stuff.
I looked on my shelf.
That's when I spotted one of those books I'd been meaning to read, but it got stuck on the shelf between some other books and was overlooked.
The Beauty of Faith: Using Christians Art to Spread the Good News by Jem Sullivan. With a forward by Supreme Knight Carl Anderson. And the text of Pope John Paul II's 1999 "Letter to Artists."
It's short. I'll give it a shot. Then dive into something Franciscan.
Pax et bonum
