Beauty Walks

At Meadville Lombard Theological School, students all begin their studies with “beauty walks” – taking a walk through a community in Chicago, and then around the community that surrounds the congregation where they will do their internship. What might you notice if you walked around your own neighborhood with fresh eyes, looking, listening, smelling… is there beauty right in front of you that you missed? Can you find beauty in a strip mall or low income neighborhood? A beauty walk asks us to notice both what is in front of us, and what is within us that affects what and how we see a place.
