A great article on the revival of the arts in our culture:
Artists use talents for glory of GodDeep into the heart of Texas, 2,500 writers, poets and scholars brought their creative hunger in February for a big helping of “Art and Soul,” an international festival of religious faith and literary art.
In the basement of New York’s Empire State Building, 400 painters, actors and musicians from 14 states and three countries gathered in March for a weeklong conference on “Art as Prayer, Prayer as Art.”
And this summer, from Hollywood, Calif., and Santa Fe, N.M., to Minneapolis, Minn., and Washington, hundreds of other artistic souls will bring their creative passions together for one purpose: Jesus.
It seems the evangelical church giant is beginning to stir from its long aesthetic sleep. For the first time in decades, artists are finding new opportunities for expression in their Christian communities.
