New Lutheran Quote of the Day

The aesthetic element in worship, for example in linens, vestments, or candles, becomes no end in itself but a means of expressing our devotion to the Lord of the church, who is present and active there. On the other hand, poor art is not simply a matter of bad taste but a sign of poor religion... Shoddy sacrifice and shoddy art have no place in Christian worship. -- Earnest Koenker, *Worship in Word and Sacrament* p. 79
