Greg Wilbur: “Rhythm and Order: The Soul’s Quest for Beauty”
As image-bearers of God, we long for order and meaning. The rhythms of life move us through weeks, months, and seasons even as we seek to structure our hours, activities, and surroundings. Through creation, music, and liturgy, we are called to participate in the Godly rhythms that bring spiritual, emotional, and physical health and, ultimately, rest for our souls.
