I wrote a post not too long ago for the artFWD blog called The Artist Minister. In the article, I discussed a couple concepts pertaining to art in the church, and the future of artists’ involvement in ministry. I was very encouraged when I got to the STORY conference in Chicago, and read the article by Blaine Hogan, The Artist as The New Pastor. I was again encouraged to read a blog post by the pastor of Gateway Church, Paul Stewart, Pastor as Curator.
It’s often said that God doesn’t move through one single person, but rather plants ideas in many people, and the concept emerges as a new move of God. Well, this my friends…is a new movement. And not just because the three of us wrote about overlapping and related ideas, but because every time I write or talk about this, it resonates with people very deeply.
