TheWorkofthePeople.com

I've shared their videos before, but I continue to be moved and inspired by the work and art of Travis & Steve over at The Work of the People. Their videos go beyond simple interviews and/or rebukes of the Church and/or cheesy evangelical videos...all the way to art. We need more art in the Church. When the Church sold itself to rationalism, we left the arts to the rest of the world, which is an absolute pity. Anyway, there are about a dozen videos I want to share from them right now, but the one that's been haunting me the most lately is from Fuller Seminary professor John Goldingay.

In the first ten seconds, I was annoyed with Goldingay. By the end of the two-minute video, I wanted to cry with him. If anything can switch my emotions that quickly...it's art.

"What's your strategy to love?"

"To do it."

True, true.
