Artists & the Church
God blesses each of us with various talents and gifts that we may freely exercise in the world and the Church. Some abilities seem to be more 'usable' than others in the Church; instrumentalists, for example, can readily work in the music ministry to enhance services. There are some gifts, though, that haven't necessarily taken a fuller role in worship/the greater Church life.
In this case, I'm talking about art.
So, my fellow visual artists, how have you/your churches exercised/utilized your talents? I am currently in dialog with people in my church about this subject. I would REALLY like to start some form of college Christian (or even interfaith!) art group, and I'd love to hear your experiences in regards to this topic.
I hope this leads to some interesting conversation!
