About The Cultivating Project
The Cultivating Project is an initiative of Cultivating the Good, the True, and the Beautiful.
The design and purpose of the website for Cultivating the Good, the True, and the Beautiful is to provide a welcoming place to restore, renew, and reinforce the individual. It is a private place of quiet where you don’t have to answer questions, engage in anything more challenging than looking at beautiful images or reading short pieces of Scripture or essays. This is a place to rest mind, heart, and soul. It is also a place to teach and reinforce the practice of choosing what we focus on in our daily living and walking. It is a place to be reminded what is good, true, and beautiful.
Sooner or later though as we rest and heal individually we will be lead to keep company with others. “It is not good for man to be alone.” We are known by God as the exact individual we are, yet from the moment of our inception we are created in community. As creative beings isolation is one of our greatest enemies, and one of the most seductive. The Cultivating Project is an expression of this next step in the long process of healing and thriving. The Cultivating Project is designed to bring together a gathering of Christ-rooted souls committed to encouraging, modeling, and equipping others for spiritual maturity, creative excellence, and living in community.
May you find in us welcome, rest & nourishment among kindred fellows on the road Home. Soli Deo Gloria!
