The Bold And Beautiful

Christian And The Arts

A theology for artistry (Why the need for artistry? Is it important to God?)

- The function of the artist (The various roles an artist can play)
- A Christian worldview for artistic expression (What kind of artistic expression is acceptable/valid in God's eyes? Does our artistic expression always have to be about our faith for God to accept it?)
- The Bible and the arts (A survey of the whole Bible as a case-study to see God's perspective on artistic expression and to draw principles for our own artistic expression)

This workshop is targeted at older teens and adults

Date: 12 March 06 (Sunday)
Time: 1.45 pm

Christians used to speak of God as the good, the true and the beautiful. Now the last category is missing, is it any wonder we are so seduced by sensuality and the hypocrisy of this "image is everything" spirit of our age?

Did anyone catch Troubadours Open Doors last Sunday (Feb 26, 2006) at KLPac?

Da Praise Project, a gospel group performed a few self-written selections of worship songs to a secular audience.
