Beauty isn’t always about new products, shiny surfaces, the latest technology, or a grand building project. It’s not about architectural renderings or ornamental features. The care you take of your space can that — and even more — to demonstrate beauty to your community as the efforts that go into a remodel or a new building concept. A clean parking lot & building, a fresh coat of paint, or new carpet and attention to detail all contribute to a welcoming atmosphere. Being intentional with the atmosphere you create is an essential part of communicating care and beauty to those who come to your church and those who drive past it.
As you consider what it would mean for your church, ministry, or school to communicate beauty in new, creative ways, think about it not as something you need to go out and look for. Instead, re-discover that beauty already exists within your space and your community. What needs a refresh? What needs to be cleaned or decluttered? What’s going unnoticed and simply needs to be highlighted?
Beauty isn’t something you have to create. It’s something you get to discover.
It’s not about what you buy or what you plan but about the culture you create.
As you seek to create a space that reflects the Creator, consider what opportunities for beauty already exist and do your best to make it a priority.
