Truth, Goodness, and Beauty

Way Truth Life

I appreciated the recent Tweet (Thanks for pointing to it, Bishop Peter Carrell) that understood that we all yearn for truth, goodness, and beauty, and the Tweet neatly summarised that different approaches stress different priorities:

Some of the discussions that followed, again obviously in generalisations, also highlighted other focuses:

Eastern Christianity was more about encountering the glory of God. Western Christianity has been about: How do I get saved?

Brad Evans

My question was, what, then, would be the Anglican stress? Fr Malcolm French would have it be

Beautiful, Good, and True.

Malcolm French

That would leave

Good, True, and Beautiful
True, Beautiful, and Good

Which groupings would these last two point to? Do you agree with the generalisations given? What do you think?
