God has created our world with the joyful possibility of art. Those gifted with the creativity necessary for this task should be nurtured and supported in their calling to serve the common good.
We need art. The aesthetic dimension is a vital part of life. Just as medicine, plumbing, and farming are not optional luxuries for a society, neither is art. One can survive without art for a time, much like important minerals or vitamins, but it is unwise and ultimately dangerous to live without it.
As the aesthetic dimension of a community flourishes, so the community as a whole flourishes. Our church seeks to be a welcoming vessel for artists in our community.
