Interim Rector's Ramblings 

" Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul." - John Muir
 
Everybody needs beauty as well as bread.
 
It is just that simple.
 
For a HUMAN life to be lived, and not just a sustained life to be lived; it is just that simple. We all need beauty as well as bread.
 
We all need our basic food needs met (bread), as well as our basic spiritual and beauty needs met (play and pray).
 
This is all and everything that we as a Christian community should strive for on behalf of all people. This is the mission of the church! That every member of the church should seek to strive so that everyone who needs both beauty and bread should have access to that beauty and bread.
 
Striving for human dignity is so basic that Maslow included "beauty, balance and form" on his upper levels of hierarchy of needs for the human being in addition to "bread/food" on his bottom rung the ladder of human needs.
 
We as Christians are called to help all people up the ladder of Maslow's hierarchy of needs into a more "HUMAN" life. We are called as Christians to help people move from bread to beauty.
 
I moved to Hawai'i after living a number of years only 45 minutes away from Yosemite. John Muir was essential in the establishment of the Sierra Club and the establishment of many of our National Parks. His legacy was all around my former diocese...and his calling, as well as Jesus' calling, to us is higher than just bread. John Muir's legacy, and the following of Jesus, calls us into the basic understanding that Jesus had when Jesus called us to address both spiritual and temporal needs. We are to preserve and share the beauty of God's creation which exists all around us but we are also called to invite others into the beauty, sharing and preserving of God's creation.
 
We are called to provide not only bread for our neighbors, but also to help preserve the beauty of creation and thereby provide for some of the spiritual needs of our neighbors.
 
Beauty and Bread. That is what we are all called to be about.
 
Blessings,
 
 
Canon Kate+
