Limitations, Delicacy, and Beauty

A wise man once said that “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die” (Ecc 3:1-2 NIV). The entire concept of “limitation” is categorically anathema to our culture. We would like to be able to do whatever we want, whenever we want. In this podcast, Nathan and Cameron ponder whether embracing the frailty and limitations of our time and abilities can actually give us a deeper sense of beauty and appreciation for the present moment. There are certain delights that are accessible to us only if we recognize them as delicate, and there is a certain hope that we have by acknowledging that future beauty is not limited by our limitations.
