Artistic Devotion

If you’re searching for a short devotion/meditation, I highly recommend taking a look at The Hallway Through the Sea, an online series written by Timothy Dalrymple, president and CEO of Christianity Today.

Described as “specifically for those struggling through the coronavirus pandemic,” the entries “address our sense of fear and isolation and also the ways we find beauty and truth and hope—and Christ himself—in the midst of suffering.”

Additionally, each message is paired with a work of art or music “to inspire and bring beauty through the darkness of this season.”

From a recent entry:

We become what we attend to. The more we devote our attention to worldly diversions, the more worldly and divided we become. The more we harness all of our attention into attentiveness to Jesus Christ, the more we are united with Christ and conformed to his image. In this season, countless anxieties and agitations clamor for our attention. Help us, O Lord, to discipline our powers of attention. Help us to lift our eyes away from our passing troubles and to fix our eyes on the one who was lifted up for us.

May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. (2 Cor. 13:14)
