Artists: marginalised in church?

There’s been an interesting exchange of the place artists play in church.

The original article is HERE.

THIS is the most enjoyable response.

And there is a further response HERE.

Certainly worth some thought and discussion. Initial thoughts are that it makes art (the artist?) the focus rather than Christ. Now, I’m not against creativity, I enjoy lots of music, but we must remember that often creativity is hardly inviting for a congregation. The worship service is corporate, not individual. By all means, get the artists involved…and let them serve Christ, the church, and the members of their local congregation.

We are Christians before we are artists.
