CQOD: 04/06/06 -- Bergman: art and worship

Christian Quotation of the Day

April 6, 2006
Commemoration of Albrecht Dürer, artist, 1528, and Michelangelo Buonarrotti, artist, spiritual writer, 1564
    All your works shall give thanks to you, O LORD,
        and all your saints shall bless you!
    They shall speak of the glory of your kingdom
        and tell of your power...
    -- Psalms 145:10-11 (ESV)

    It is my opinion that art lost its basic creative drive the moment it was separated from worship. It severed an umbilical cord... In former days the artist remained unknown and his work was to the glory of God... Today the individual has become the highest form and the greatest bane of artistic creation.
    ... Ingmar Bergman (b.1918), The Seventh Seal, introduction

Quiet time reflection:
    All beauty is Your beauty, O Lord.
