The Place of the Artist in the Christian Community BY: Robert Russell This article is intended to give an overview of some of the ways that people in the past have thought about how art might be organized; also, I will sketch out a very brief history of how I think that artists got to where they are now.
Expecting Adam: A True Story of Birth, Rebirth, and Everyday Magic (Martha Beck, 2000) BY: Aaron Sands I admit I did not have high expectations for a book about a child born with Down’s syndrome into a Harvard family, but I was intrigued by the broader scope regarding a family that has its world turned upside-down, about the way real life events shape our view of the world more than the highest acclaimed education.

Decorating or Desecrating the Temple? BY: Travis Scott Tattooing and body modification, for good or ill, has been on the rise for the past several decades. Where should the church stand on this practice?
Overfed but Undernourished: Reality Television BY: David John Seel, Jr. Reality TV exploits the petty desires of average people. Fame, fashion, and fortune are creatively packaged in modern versions of the Cinderella story.
Mystic River (Clint Eastwood, 2003) BY: Andrew H. Trotter, Jr. From the opening shot, Clint Eastwood transports us into the life a commonplace neighborhood in Irish urban Boston and shows us life in America, the complex land of lofty, immigrant dreams and dark, tragic realities.
I love my neighbor as myself but only because I don’t much care for myself.

This web site is old and creaky. The email function functions poorly when it functions at all. Worse, it all looks old. So we are starting work on building a new site, and hope to have it functioning by fall.
Our vision will not change, nor will our attempt in this little spot of the Internet to invite you to join us in thinking about the things that matter most. Thanks for visiting.
