This week, Dordt College's online journal In All Things featured my article on the possibilities of Christian art.
You can read the article here.
I was given the prompt of "Christian Art" for my article. I settle pretty quickly on an outline and began my writing. As I neared the end of this article, I started thinking that this is just one of 20 different articles I could write on the subject...each with a different subject and approach. The subject is vast as are the means of approaching it. The length prohibits the nuance I would have enjoyed bringing to the discussion, but overall I am satisfied with what I have been able to say..albeit in a somewhat limited fashion.
I am thankful for the opportunity from iAT for causing me to reflect more on the curious life of an artist in the church. It also has helped me develop a bit of a new habit of rising early to read and write. It offers me a bit of time to be still, reflect, and focus my thoughts and energies before the chaos of the day ensues. I hope that this latter part will be something I am able to maintain going forward. Perhaps then this blog wont be silent for months on end.
