Art and kids
A friend of mine by day is an image curator/librarian for an art book publishing compnay. By night, he paints. He has had shows locally. One of the things he does at church is work with kids in our inner-city neighborhood ministry. He gives them permission to create art, not verbally but by the way he treats them and respects them. The art they create is not churchy, but it is spiritual in many cases. With art and music suffering in the public schools, this is an important adjunct to our ministry. So far he hasn't brought it into a formal liturgical setting.
