New today: Painting Pentecost, creative ministers, book buzz
New today from the Century
Painting Pentecost, by Amos Yong and Jonathan A. Anderson. Sawai Chinnawong is persuaded that he must live into the gospel as a Thai artist. But the pastor who baptized him called his paintings “Buddhist.”
What are creative ministers thinking about these days? by Carol Howard Merritt. I just returned from Unconference, a brain trust for starting progressive communities and sustaining traditional ones. The break-out groups give us a taste of what young(ish) ministers struggle with and what they’re excited about.
Beware of the book buzz, by Richard A. Kauffman. I understand the growing need for writers to promote their own work. But I'm concerned about the consequences of authors functioning as their own promoters.
Pentecost, by Giotto di Bondone, with commentary by Heidi J. Hornik and Mikeal C. Parsons.
