Scottish parliament

Here is the Scottish Parliament debating chamber. It is a beautiful room, with lots of wood and natural light.

I like things that are well done. Christians sometimes debate about aesthetics, with some saying our buildings should be built with bare-bones budgets, while others build elaborate cathedrals. Each side in these sorts of debates usually makes valid points. My position is usually excellence and beauty without extravagance. We are created in the image of God, and should therefore make beautiful things, not just useful things. At the same time, there are many needs out in the world, so we shouldn’t live in luxury.

The balance, I suppose, is usually hard to find.

Grace and Peace
