The Artist

“If you look at church history, you’ll find that the church used to be the center of the arts. It created culture and set the tone. Eventually the arts shifted from sacred to secular.”
– Pastor Tommy “Urban D.” Kyllonen

Art reaches people on a deeper and more personal level than the written or spoken word. Art is from the soul. Art is beginning and end - all displayed at once in a song, a dance, a sculpture, a painting, and so on. The greatest artist is our Creator Himself. He took unending space and turned it into an infinite amount of universes. He took dust from the ground and created a man. He took bone and sculpted a woman. If we think art doesn’t matter, we deny the very nature of God. If we destroy His creation, we devalue the work of His hands.

I believe it is time to reclaim our heritage.
