Last night was Eugene Peterson, telling three stories of artists who have impacted his life, and how they intersect with artists and crafts-persons in the Bible. Yesterday afternoon I met John Wilson, editor-in-chief for Books and Culture Magazine. This afternoon I sat in Luci Shaw's seminar, and had a lovely chat with her both before and after.
Dinner tonight was Texas BBQ. And later we're meeting up with old Upland friend David Clucas.
I'm beginning to wish a lot of people I knew were here. Too much to digest and process and ponder and be challenged by. . .
As far as I know, we're the only Covenanters here, and I'm wishing we had stronger representation. I think a lot of good could come out of the discussions being had in this symposium. I also wish I had 10 more Lakebay people here, so they could get some of the same message. Good, powerful, mind-changing. A vision for re-awakening a heart for art as an expression of God's creativity and our worship; a multitude of sights and sounds and textures and tastes and smells, all for the glory of God. Wondering how to have a place in bringing it to reality in our world. So much to think about, so much to do.
