Dr Peter Beck and Dr Peter Link join us again to discuss how their churches use art, their experiences and thoughts on what is "beautiful", and how / whether the Church should reclaim the arts! Hosts, Joshua Noel and TJ (Tiberius Juan) Blackwell, ask the Peters about beauty in nature and art; then, we all discuss the power of beauty and how it reflects the character of God!
What does Socrates believe about beauty? What did Aristotle say about beauty? What philosophy says about beauty? What God says about beauty? How beauty draws us to God? Why is art important to the church? What does the church say about art? What role does art play in Christianity? How did the church influence art? Why is music classified as art? Do humans need beauty? Should flags be displayed in church? Is there a church flag? Should churches have a brand? What do our facebook banners say about us?
In this episode, we will:
- Discuss the importance of art
- Explain how God is seen in all things beautiful
- Consider the Church's role in the arts, historically
- Challenge our own perspectives on liturgy and Church robes
- Deconstruct the ideas behind the Church flag and Church branding
