Cultivating the Spiritual Life and Creative Work of Artists

Matters of the Heart
"What if being an artist wasn't about being seen, but about learning to see?"
This great question is a quote form artist/photographer Jeremy Cowart. He applied it to the topic of vision. I believe it could be applied to each of our lives as people who are walking in Love in a growing relationship with God. It's an amazing question isn't it? I mean even me sending you this Newsletter probably has an element of wanting to be seen by a few hundred of you mixed with the desire to share what the Lord is teaching me to look at . . . how to see. The scriptures say "Man looks at the outward but God looks on the heart."

Meet with Roy
Most days, Roy can be found speaking with a musician, a worship leader, a visual artist, tech director, an author or writer in a coffee house in Southern California about their life, their art and their relationship with God. Many or most have devoted their full time hours vocationally as an artist. Many serve in churches. Many do not. They all have three things in common. First, they are all gifted artists in their area of creativity. Second, they all desire to connect their life and art more with God. Third, someone introduced them to Roy.
Roy believes God deeply loves artists. Not more than any other people but uniquely because of the intentional way He fashioned and created them to be ministers of beauty.
