I posted about this on FB, but I thought it was worth a blog post, in the event that not everybody saw that….
Tomorrow at church, instead of a sermon we’ll have a free-flowing conversation between four of us connected to both the arts and spirituality. We’re in the middle of a series on creation, and one of the clear ways that we human beings express our creativity is through the gift of art. So, who better to deliver the message that day, than artists?!
I’ll be pleased to be joined by three very gifted artists…
|Joan Hogge, painter and visual artist.|
|Vicki Cheatwood, noted playwright and author.|
|Ron Bobbitt, composer and musician.|
And, you might imagine, I’ll probably have a few things to say about the subject too.
Main questions for the day:
— How do each of you see the connection between art/creativity and faith/spirituality?
— Are there some specific ways you experience the connection?
— Do you believe everyone is creative? What can people to do find their own creative path?
— Are there specific rituals, places, practices that help you become more fully aware and creative?
To whet your appetite, here are some great quotes about art and spirituality from many artists in many times:
It’s a lot to cover in twenty minutes or less. 😉
So, I’m sure we won’t to get to all of it. But I have great respect for all three of these, and I look forward to the conversation that we’ll “create” together.
