Nate Risdon, the associate director of the Brehm Center for Worship, Theology and the Arts at Fuller Seminary, was recently interviewed by the Washington Institute to discuss vocation, and he specifically considers the relationship between churches and artists:
“Typically, an artist’s work is an expression born out of an understanding of their vocation, yet it is dismissed because it doesn’t quite fit into the traditional definition many churches have for 'vocation.' Artists of different stripes express the mysteries of this world with the concrete material of this world. This is why they are important for the church.”
