In 2000 God started to point me into Creative Arts within the church. I fought this because I didn’t want to be incubated into mediocrity within a Christian subculture. I didn’t want to be involved in anything resembling a “church skit”. That is why church art has such a bad name and little impact. I began to realize, however, that what the church needed was someone to champion the God given creativity in all of us and to develop that in others. Today much of my time is spent within my church community which I push, taunt, encourage and drag towards more varied expressions of creative arts communication.
I am not always comfortable with that role and unsure if we achieve our purpose, but many times the journey is as important as the end result. It is in the safe community of fellow artists who claim Christ as Savior that we can take steps in the right direction. This blog is a weekly attempt, one post at a time, to help us see all of life, 360 degrees, as worship.
