As I am all wound up about the carousel project that I visited and posted recently about, and the beautiful work I saw, and how all of those volunteers creating that carousel didn’t even know about painting or woodcarving before . . . I got to thinking, why a project like this only for a secular purpose?
What if a parish, or Catholic school, got together, and did a project like this to beautify their church, on a large longterm scale in the public eye? What about creating a group of angels, or a communion of saints to surround a church (or hall, or school) in witness of faith? A community/parish-created manger scene for Christmas? Or some other way to glorify God through communally-created art ? To do something beautiful for God . . .
Wouldn’t that be great?
Could that work and become a reality someplace?
