Art and Faith
I’m thrilled to be back in Texas this week meeting with a motivated group of students. We are exploring relevance, faith, culture, and art. (Get excited.) When I started explaining the topic to my husband he was less than enthusiastic- at first! But rather than spend five hours talking about specific works of art, my desire is to raise questions about our response to culture.
Here’s the quote that got the ball rolling:
“There is nothing so secular that it cannot be sacred, and that is one of the deepest messages of the Incarnation.” – Madeleine L’Engle
I don’t have time to turn this into a lengthy series, but I wanted to direct some questions your way. Feel free to respond in the comment section or to just answer for yourself. I think our responses to this question DO matter. So…
What was your first reaction to L’Engle’s quote? Do you agree with her statement?
