Churches of Christ have got to give artists more ways to channel their talents for the glory of God.
And yes, there are too many ugly websites and poorly done Power Point slides. People with artistic gifts could really do our churches some favors in those departments.
But beyond that, we are missing waaay too many opportunities to communicate truth and beauty through painting, film, music, and architecture. I know there are people in our fellowships with mad skills who have never been asked to use their gifts in the context of their church.
It’s like a guy with incredible legs who’s never tried to run.
We’ve got body parts we aren’t even using.
