To behold the King in his beauty

In light of the Transfiguration theme of beholding the King in his beauty:

The Nashotah House promotional video from the 1980s closed with the acting Dean--the late Bishop Stanley Atkins of Eau Claire, Wisconsin--discussing the reason for the deliberate cultivation of beauty in the worship life of the seminary. He put it in a way that I shall never forget.

"Worship--beautiful worship--has access to the human soul which is not open to discursive reason."
