I've submitted an article to a friend's blog on Art and Faith called "Art and Why?".

Jake Doktor and I once, briefly, wrote for Relevant Magazine. Since then he and I have been kindred spirits, although we've never spoken on the phone or met in person. In fact, I don't even know what he looks like. Still, he is a good friend and a dear brother in the Lord.

I'll let him finish the story on his blog, and then you can read the article and see what else he's got going on over there.

Jake's blog is:

About the blog: Art and Why?

This blog will explore the basic of question of WHY ART?
What is it that chokes you up in a movie, song or in front of painting?
Why do you make art? Write songs?
Whats your favorite painting, sculpture, poem, scribble?

The big WHY of why do we make this stuff? Why do we read this stuff? Why do we look at this stuff?

I conjecture that if we talk about the WHY long enough we will move beyond talking about art and start talking about things like, LOVE, PAIN, NEED, ACCEPTANCE, LONELINESS, COMPASSION, HOPE, BEAUTY etc.

FYI- If you live in Orange County, please be sure to drop by the St. John's Lutheran Church presentation of SEEDS Art Show, featuring my sister in Christ, HEATHER WRIGHT. She will be painting live in front of the church on Sunday evening at 6:30pm. Come join us and our house church family as we support Heather and her incredible gift.
