I am so busy with teaching art/photography in High School, taking two graduate courses in theology and research writing, working with the youth at church, and having three children of my own. It's a little mind boggling. I'm excited that we are going to take as many as we can to Onething in Kansas City Dec. 28-31. Also, it's great to be writing a 15 page paper on the role of the fine arts in the church.
Not only is the paper arguing for more of the fine arts in the church, but also arguing for a charismatic view of the arts in the church. Just as preaching can be purely educational/indoctrinational and prophetic transformational, so too the arts can be seen as an illustration or a prophetic act of power. I haven't heard anyone preach on this ever before, so I feel blessed to write about it.
