Our theme for services and events this month is ‘Nurturing Beauty’. Here, we share some inspiring quotations and some questions to give you food for thought.
Words of Wisdom
'This a wonderful day. I've never seen this one before.'
'The ability to see beauty is the beginning of our moral sensibility. What we believe is beautiful we will not wantonly destroy.'
Rev. Sean Parker Dennison
'There is nothing more beautiful than someone who goes out of their way to make life beautiful for others.'
'The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.'
'In difficult times, carry something beautiful in your heart.'
