Wally Braul spoke on “Creativity and Faith”. Though “neither an artist nor connoisseur of art”, Wally is intrigued by how some artists view faith and creativity, engage in creativity without faith, and the existence of creativity outside conventional art. When meshing creativity in art with faith, the artist is struggling with God through internal agonizing, attempting to be brutally honest in the search. If it is good art, questions start coming and cannot be evaded. Some art, however, has no apparent relation to faith, but even then, these works of art are reflections of creativity, and God is viewed as being creative. Unlike with God, we should not worship the artist, but rather focus on the art. There is also creativity in law, politics,
economics, sociology, farming, mechanics, culinary work, etc., and these spheres are more give scope for artistic expression in ‘the garden of life’. Artistic expression, after all, is essential to the church. [JEK]
