For many years, Michael Card has been my favorite song writer. He has a gift for transferring biblical principles into song. I was honored to conduct an interview with him on The Exchange on the subject of the “biblical imagination.” In the continuing my series on the intersection of the arts and creativity with our faith, I thought it would be good to revisit the conversation.
The previous posts on creativity and our faith have been with a painter who is a church planter, indie artist Stacie Frenes (part 1 and part 2), some thoughts on the song Hallelujah, a conversation with Andrew Peterson, and thoughts from novelist Tosca Lee. It is a wondrous process to see how God uses a myriad of gifts in the church to communicate the beauty of Christ.
Periodically, I go back and watch the show with Michael as it always reminds me of how God works in our lives through the Scriptures. It can be especially helpful during the holiday season when the church finds itself busy with musicals, dramas, videos, and cantatas. I hope you will take some time to listen carefully to the wisdom from this friend to the church.
