Spiritual Quote of the Day (Rev. Lynn Casteel Harper, on Imagination and Solomon’s Wisdom)

“The visual arts, creative movement, music, touch, a place in the soul that is below the verbal and rational. The jaw loosens, the breath slows and the heart lifts when we sing. When our capacity falls, the exact things in Solomon’s wisdom endure — poetry, songs and nature. The human heart longs for the imaginative and the noble.”— Rev. Lynn Casteel Harper, minister of older adults, Riverside Church, New York City, quoted in Mary Lee Talbot, “Poetry, Music, Nature Are at Center of Divine Wisdom, Says Harper,” The Chautauquan Daily, Aug. 17, 2021
