How can we worship in art? - The Whole Church Podcast

Episode 195

How can we worship in art?

Hosts, Joshua Noel and TJ (Tiberius Juan) Blackwell, are joined by guests Taylor and Elizabeth Pangalangan Clyde! For our first full episode in our "Ecumenical Aesthetics" series, we ask Pang and Taylor about their experiences with the arts, with worship painting, and with leading worship in song at Church. We discuss why some people paint during worship services, and why people seem to rarely think of "worship music" as "art".


What is worship painting? Why do people paint during worship? What is a prophetic painting? What are church paintings called? Why are songs considered art? What is a song of praise especially a religious song? How do you choose a song for praise and worship? What was the meaning of hymns? What are considered hymns? What is worship? What is worship according to Bible? What does a worship leader do?


In this episode, we will:

  • Discuss the misconceptions of worship painting
  • Explore the healing power of beauty
  • Discuss what makes music art
  • Consider whether worship music should be considered an art

Offering Plate

We may not be huge fans of the pressure that goes along with a literal offering plate, but we do hope you will consider giving to our ministry so we can afford to continue our work to educate and unite the Church!
