Christians in Art

Monday, October 20, 2008
Excellent post from The Broadcast's interview of Mike Gough on Christians in art.

A few quotes that challenged me.

Do it (art) properly, don’t settle for the christian community as your primary audience/customer, engage with the real industry coal-face,
God really has got enough guitar-based worship
Don’t settle for professional mediocrity, aim to be better.

Don’t rely on the church community to sustain your work, get out and engage with the great unwashed.

Avoid the using the word ‘calling’ when talking about what you do as an artist/creative, loads up too much expectation and pressure
