Art and Worship; Art and Devotion

Lisa DeBoer

This talk is from the session, Worship, Music, The Arts and Formation, the second breakout session of the 2018 Experiencing Life with God Conference, an academic conference hosted by the Martin Institute of Westmont College and Renovaré.

Here is Lisa Deboer’s description:

The visual arts can be a powerful aid in Christian worship and devotion. Setting new Protestant practices alongside older Orthodox and Catholic practices illuminates excellent questions Protestants would do well to ponder. We’ll take up just one: how the arts connect public worship to private devotion and why this matters.
