Two recommended sites

I'd like to recommend to you two faith-and-the-arts websites.

1. Church and Art Network, which is "a gathering of arts leaders who are extending our capacity to serve God in our creative work, by sharing resources, making connections, and advocating together for the importance of our work to the church and the world." You can become a member of the network, receive an email newsletter, network with other arts leaders in churches, read the blog, and join in conversations. Here is a conversation in response to my article about church patronage of the arts. Please join in!

2. ArtWay, which "seeks to open up the world of the visual arts to the interested lay man and woman. Our goal is to hand people a key to this world that is rich and fascinating yet sometimes hard to enter." This site offers advice to churches on art-related topics; maintains information about exhibitions, events, artists, and books; and offers innumerable recommendations and online resources. I especially like the list of North American organizations and websites on Christianity and art.
