Rather, let your adornment be the inner self with the lasting beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in God’s sight.  —1 Peter 3:4

The Fairest thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science. The one who knows it not and can no longer wonder, no longer feels amazement, is as good as dead, a snuffed-out candle. A knowledge of the existence of something we cannot penetrate, of the manifestations of the profoundest reason and the most radiant beauty, which are only accessible to our reason in their most elementary forms—it is this knowledge and this emotion that constitute the truly religious attitude; in this sense, and in this alone, I am a deeply religious man. —Albert Einstein, The World As I See It

Steady me in your mystery, O God, lasting and gentle. Amen. —The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
