“It was the first time I realized that painting could capture the Word of God, speak into people’s lives and give me the opportunity to share my faith.”

BLOG

Every day all around the globe, artists on mission are creating, cultivating, and contributing in their communities. As they seek to see their art used in the work the Lord is doing, we want to share their stories to encourage and inspire.
This blog is a place to read those stories, giving you a glimpse into how the Lord is using the arts around the world.

It is such a joy for us when we get to highlight the fruition of our artists' projects. Last year, we shared an article with you written by Pat Butler about the process of writing her book, Collision: How I Found My Life By Accident. We have an update for you!

The ongoing crisis in Ukraine has been sobering for all of us. It has been the subject of much prayer and reflection, and undoubtedly for many of you, artistic response. Our friends at Arts Plus have been publishing weekly reflections along with the artwork of Paul Hobbs (an artist from the UK). See their explanation below and check out their website to view the Beatitudes series.

Easter: A Literary Reflection

“So that is the outline of the official story—the tale of the time when God was the underdog and got beaten, when he submitted to the conditions he had laid down and became a man like the men he had made, and the men he had made broke him and killed him. This is the dogma we find so dull—this terrifying drama of which God is the victim and the hero.”

- Dorothy Sayers, Letters to a Diminished Church

From Rejection to Hope

On this Archive Wednesday (coming a day late this week - apologies for that!), read about a man from Kurdistan who longs for his music to reach his people with the gospel. 

Last week, we had the privilege of talking with one of our team members in Hungary. Recently, she had the opportunity to travel to the border between Ukraine and Hungary and work with the aid organizations offering help there.
