Cultivating Aesthetic Literacy

Well, I just finished and submitted another course which puts me one step closer to finishing my degree!  This course was called: “CCE 307 Aesthetics” and was a fascinating study of the principles of beauty.  I enjoyed the lectures, was cathederal[1]stimulated by the reading, and had the chance to begin to formulate some of my own thoughts on the topic of aesthetic literacy.  I hope to write much more about aesthetics in the years to come (I’m particularly interested in exploring the idea and development of a distinctively Reformed aesthetic, particularly in the context of corporate worship).  The thesis for this initial paper was simply that, “Our culture values literacy in reading, writing, math, science, and technology, but we should also seek to cultivate aesthetic literacy as well.”  If you’d like to read my paper for the course I’d love to hear any thoughts or comments!  You can access it here:
