Today we had a session from Barbara Nicolosi from Church of the Masses. As a recent Godspy interview said, “Barbara Nicolosi is on a mission from God. Literally. The founder and director of the Act One: Writing for Hollywood program is a modern day anti-Jonah, passionately crashing the gates of today’s Ninevehs – Los Angeles and New York – on behalf of an interdenominational campaign to find and train Christian artists to work in the entertainment business.”
All I can say is, “Wow!” I feel like we could stop all the sessions now and just spend time unpacking what she talked about: the church (again) becoming the patron of the arts. I also had the opportunity to hang out with Barbara at dinner.
I really resonated with Barbara’s discussion of Aristotle and his views on truth and beauty. I have been challenged on taking our church art to a new level.
