There is a good conversation brewing at PostmodernLandscape.com about defending Christian art in church and Christian communities. If you don’t already know, PostmodernLandscape.com is the discussion website for readers of the series of books by Geoff Hall entitled Spiritual Direction in a Postmodern Landscape, and some of the ideas here on Upptäcka Network are similar in content. So if you like what you’re reading here, visit the forum on PostmodernLandscape.com and get involved.

Art is not culturally formative, it doesn’t inform or transform anyones opinion or perspective, it is simply there to provide entertainment, a means of distraction from the mundaneness of our lives, a means of escape if you will.
