What do you think? Is that a good name for this blog? Here's a draft description:
work of art and each encounter with nature is an island of "Sehnsucht":
a moment of heavenly longing out of mundane existence. Here we reflect
on how the arts show forth divine truth.
C.S. Lewis wrote about "joy" or "sehnsucht" all his life: about those moments of insatiable longing that point us to God. In his life, as in mine, those moments are most frequently stimulated by a work of art (poetry, music, etc.) or something beautiful in nature.
The other title I'm considering is Surprised by Everything, since that is also how I live. I am like a child in the face of great art or natural beauty. It is always new, always shocking, always uplifting.
I believe that all great works of art, whether their creators meant them to or not, bear witness to the deep truth of the Christian faith.
So what do you think? Is that a good title for this blog? What encounters have catalyzed sehnsucht in your life? Does art show forth Christian truth?
