A volcanic eruption in 1994 destroyed the Seventh-day Adventist Church's mission compound in Rabaul (PNG). Standing in the midst of the devastation and his own disappointment, Dr Brad Watson soon realised an important truth: God is in the business of giving "beauty for ashes" (Isaiah 61:3).
If God cared enough to dedicate entire books in the canon of Scripture to poetry and song; if Jesus cared enough to spend a significant portion of His time on earth to being a storyteller; and if He cared enough to fill His house with colours, music, texture and beauty, then He is a God who values and invests in the arts as a way of telling us and the world who He is. And maybe we should do the same.
