Is Beauty in the Eye of the Beholder? Or: Why We Should Make Churches Beautiful Again

Below is a transcribed excerpt of the video below by Brian Holdsworth.

In Christian theology, God is described as Truth, Goodness, and Beauty.


The buildings we design to focus our attention on God should reflect his beauty. And not just because it would be nice, but because God can use that to reveal himself to us. […] This is something that for large parts Christian history we did understand.


Let’s get back to commissioning Christian designers who will allow the Holy Spirit to create beautiful buildings that people will want to visit generations from now, whether they’re Christian or not, instead of these modernist misfortunes that nobody will want to step foot in 30 years after they go out of fashion.
