The church is realizing that there is an awareness of God sleeping in the basement of the postmodern imagination and they have to awaken it.The arts can do this. All beauty is subversive; it flies under the radar of people’s critical filters and points them to God…When the front door of the intellect is shut, the back door of the imagination is open. Our neglect of the power of beauty and the arts helps explain why so many people have lost interest in church. Our coming back to the arts will help renew that interest.
