This session, however, looked at some of the sociological factors that shape how the visual arts and our churches intersect. The aim of the session was twofold: 1) greater clarity for those of us working ?on the ground? about some of the sociological factors that shape our work, and 2) a deepened appreciation for the freedom and opportunity (as opposed to the obstacles) we enjoy in working in this area.

Presented at the 2008 Calvin Symposium on Worship.
