Now all the heav’nly splendor
Breaks forth in starlight tender
From myriad worlds unknown;
And we, this marvel seeing,
Forget our selfish being
For joy of beauty not our own.

We need more power outages so that we can again see what Gerhardt saw, what Abraham saw when God told him to go outside the tent and look up. We need more exposure to this beauty that we did not create, so that we can understand what beauty is.

When our technology and advancement cut us off from being able to perceive and see the beauty of our God that shines forth from His world, they do us a huge disservice.
