The artistic community of the Christian is the subject of a recent article, in which I explore the meaning of the word “community” as it relates to the arts and how they function within and through the Church most successfully.
The American College Dictionary defines community as “a social group of any size whose members reside in a specific locality, share government, and have a cultural and historical heritage.”
As “community” relates to the expression of the arts both within and through the Church, I believe there are several foundational traits that can be seen. They are as follows: 1) Boundaries and Location, 2) Language, 3) History, 4) Destiny, 5) Beliefs, 6) Sacrifice, and 7) A Means of Exchange.
Come take a journey into the role of community in the life of a Christian artist in My Vision- The Community.
