    I come to these questions without expertise in fine art, and while I do not claim to be a theologian, I am a pastor struggling to wrap my mind around this particular relationship, at this particular time, in the life of the church. If we are not taking the time to educate ourselves or our congregations to speak the language of the artists and for the artists to speak the language of theology, then art runs the risk of becoming more gimmick than revelation. Kendall Professor of New Testament, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary and Visiting Professor, Peking University, China "Duck guides the reader through worship as ritual, revelation, response, relationship and rehearsal, an approach that has no precedence in other books. This experience led me to consider, and then reconsider, the place of art in worship. William Bradford wrote of the occurrences surrounding the Puritans' arrival at the Americas in Of Plymouth Plantation. Then consider writing an arts purpose statement for your congregation.

    Sermons[ edit ] Puritan ministers most commonly used exegesis to preach on passages of scripture, meaning they strove to base their beliefs and theology directly on the Bible. Artistic actions and results Still convinced that art is mainly for looking at? This raises the danger of making art a religion. Tickets are available from Eventbrite or will be for sale on the door.

    These groups regularly meet on Wednesday nights at pm to rehearse and prepare. Each artist consulted with his or her group on how to create a work that others could understand and appreciate. From worship's theological underpinnings the book turns to worship leadership, forms of prayer, preaching, the sacraments, ordination, and various other liturgies.

We have a common ground to engage in conversation about the out-working of our calls. Except in the case of a monotypethe same matrix can be used to produce many examples of the print.

The goal of this volume is to support good pastoral and congregational reflection on what worship is and does. If we do, I hope that will lead us to more questions such as those being asked in churches exploring relationships among the church, theology, art and artists.

The Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory. I built a sermon using these pieces for illustration, then left the prints on display at the back of the sanctuary for several weeks. This raises the danger of making art a religion.

I want the answer to be yes, that visual art does belong in the sanctuary as part of worship itself. If you are looking for a book with practical ideas to use the arts in worship, this is not it. Prior to this era, art functioned as the visual historian for the people, and in the church, it communicated the basic doctrines of their faith.

Main article: Printmaking Printmaking is creating, for artistic purposes, an image on a matrix that is then transferred to a two-dimensional flat surface by means of ink or another form of pigmentation.

Artistic actions and results Still convinced that art is mainly for looking at? I think Dyrness has a point. The Freake paintings by the Freake-Gibbs painter as well as Captain Thomas Smith's self-portrait each represent a Puritan and therefore show Puritan involvement in blatantly visual arts.

The witness of the canvas can take us off the page and into new dimensions of understanding, but it can only do this corporately, in worship, if we start with the same basic theological vocabulary.

Consequently, Duck discusses many different forms of worship from several cultures African-American, Asian, Euro-American and offers advice on how to read a congregation and define its culture in order to plan culturally appropriate worship.

During the spring, Celebration Choir takes their music ministry on tour by performing a musical throughout our community. We understand how the Holy Spirit uses the Bible, inspired preaching, and music to connect us with God. Back when art was art Opening yourself to new experiences of art in worship starts with questioning two assumptions.Interesting research project on the differences between Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant believers in how they are affected by the visual arts in worship.

If you are a practitioner wanting to incorporate the arts in worship, see his "Visual Faith" for an excellent theology of the arts in worship and some practical examples of how this gets /5. Our service is built around the liturgies found in the Evangelical Lutheran Worship (ELW), the worship book and hymnal of the ELCA.

Those familiar with the Roman Catholic or Episcopalian worship style will find much in common with the Lutheran order of worship.

When considering the visual arts theme of this issue, I contacted Carl Daw—hymn writer, executive director of the Hymn Society in the United States and Canada, and a good friend—to seek recommendations for hymn texts that deal with the creative process.

He. Aug 16,  · Perhaps, then, the fine arts still communicate in our society more successfully than we have considered. Of course, our corporate worship is different in many ways than a good show or a memorial event — and we can certainly “make his praise glorious” and “play skillfully” in a wide variety of artistic or musical styles (Psalm ; ).
