Understanding and Instilling a Love of Beauty

Every year after our CiRCE conference I have the privilige of listening to the conference CD’s. Some of them are downright extraordinary, especially if you are willing and eager to think about education beyond the superficialities of popular thought. Today I was listening to a CD by Debbie Harris with the title of this blog post. I found myself repeatedly thinking, “This is incredible.”

Debbie shows in this talk how God uses beauty to draw us to Himself, how there are at least three “stages” of our perception of beauty, and how we can (and must) draw our students through these stages for beauty to fulfill its purpose. I felt my soul opening and reaching upward as she spoke.

I have to rank this as one of the top ten talks delivered at the CiRCE conferences over the past five years. You can get a copy by clicking here to visit our catalogue.
