Both Protestantism and Catholicism contribute to my faith. Both, for example, point to the psalms for comfort and encouragement. Some Protestantism emphasizes the life of community as embodying God’s will; Catholicism’s eye is ever on Holy God as the center of everything. In different ways, both have found the arts, nature, and the beauty of the world as praise to God–architecture, unspoiled landscapes, urban photography, etc.
