Title

Living the Christian Faith in Artistic Creations

Description

A church pastor, his choirmaster and a graphic artist collaborate in producing a five-part cantata, "Resurrection and Redemption," and three accompanying paintings. The pastor joins biblical and theoretical reflection with the join creative activity. Seven biblical passages receive exposition. A theoretical section gives two psychological approaches, two theological approaches, one historical and one sociological. Interrelation of religion, art and ethics is explored. Give-and-take process of adjustments in text and format are detailed. Learnings for the pastor both from theory and process are cited. The conclusion commends the "gallery model" for corporate church life and witness.
