suonds interesting...

I'm always interested in how the arts relate to Christianity and Christian practise...

Karen Armstrong in the myth book talks at the end about how art and film and literature are becoming the mythmakers of our secularised world... It seems logical that a church that is largely devoid of any sense of mythos would try to tap into the arts...

and this is somethign which should be encouraged I think, and artists given much more freedom.

You were at the lecture? Where were you sat?

It was top quality stuff, save for the guy who had a bee in his bonnet about Tom Wright lecturing on Art and Music for some reason.

I was sitting two thirds to the back on the left hand side (facing the front). I was with Mark Greer. We thought you might be there but couldn't identify you!

Steven Harris

I was about 4 rows back in the middle in a dark green hoody. I was the one that asked NTW how the church could maintain a coherent relationship between sincere and devout faith and the arts/music without descending into kitsch claptrap.

I'm not 100% sure that I'l be there next Weds but are you going?

andy goodliff

I remember that question ... good question ... yeah I'm planning to be there ... but will have to shoot off before questions, to get back to stevenage for something ...


we were sat right in front of the bloke with a bee in his bonnet - I could have so easily turned round and bopped him one!


Do you know if there will be a transcript, Andy?

Steven Harris

Hey Andy,

I'm going to be at the lecture tomorrow so drop me an e-mail if you're going too and you want to get a coffee beforehand or something.

Kyle Potter (www.captainsacrament.com) is also going to be there too.

Hi, I'm the one who had a bee in his bonnet about Tom Wright lecturing on Art and Music. You can find my reason - or at least my question - over at the D K blog. I am sorry I didn't find this thread in time or introduce myself to you all after lectures.
