Laura shared at Refuge on Sunday about theology and art. She argues that doing art can be a spiritual practice or discipline, connecting us to God. The prophets are, in many respects, artists, creating commentary on the world around them as they experience it.
This is a video Laura made about art and theology.
Laura suggests three ways that Christians might participate in prophetic art:
1. We are commissioned in scripture to uphold beauty: God is beauty.
2. Develop an aesthetic taste based on scripture, tradition and the Holy Spirit.
3. Then we own a share of the current state of ugliness in our world.
Thanks to Laura for sharing her gifts and passion with us and leading us in a night of worship through creating.
