You’ve probably heard the saying that goes: “You can have it cheap, fast, or good. Pick any two.” It’s a clever way to frame some of the most basic choices we have in life.
Sometimes I think the answer really has to be: “Pick one.”
Image has chosen “good” —good writing, good art, good design and presentation. Because the human heart is nurtured by slowness and by excellence in both craftsmanship and vision.
There are plenty of “fast” and “cheap” ways of handling art and faith. As you know, they don’t serve either faith or the culture.
That’s why Image is so desperately needed. I wrote about this “slow culture” effect a while back in an Imageeditorial, concluding that art “stills and slows and centers us, opens us up, and enables us to do what we were made to do, which is to love the world.”
I hope you will support our commitment to “slow culture.”
