In our final episode of the "A Place of Beauty Podcast," we continue in Isaiah 61, focusing on verses 8-13. How do we respond to the Lord's recreation of a fractured world? How does the artwork of kintsugi reflect truths about God's people? Can we be more than just kintsugi people, but kintsgui masters in our communities?

What if your struggles don't disqualify you, but help define (or refine) the calling on your life? In our Holy Week episode, we reflect on Christ's passion along the Via Dolorosa (The Way of the Cross) in light of the prophecy found in Isaiah 61:1-7. How does Christ's suffering invite us into the power of our own pain?

Do you see your creativity as light in darkness? This week, we reflect on John 8:12-20. How we might shine Christ's light through our art? What wounds have we acquired, or inflicted, when the light in creativity is tempered or snuffed out?

When our creativity is tied to our identity, how do we respond to God and ourselves when navigating creative dry spells? This week, we make space to hear from the Lord as we reflect on Romans 8:1-11, asking the Holy Spirit to speak louder than the other voices that would condemn us in our fallow seasons of creativity.

The war in Ukraine. Economic crisis. Isolation and mental illness. Our silent struggles. How might these and other trials be a crucible for our faith and artistic practices? In this episode, we make space to come before the Lord in lament, meditating on Psalm 86.

As we pursue excellence and skill in our work, the artistic disciple of the Lord must regularly return to gaze upon the work of The True Creator who fearfully and wonderfully his people to be holy and beloved and live "to the praise of his glory." (Ephesians 1:14)  In our fourteenth episode, “Craftsmanship," we reflect on the promises and purposes offered to us in Ephesians 1:1-14.

To have our confidence in Christ may sound like a Christian cliché. However, artists regularly face rejection from society, critics, and our own selves. How do we find our resilience in Christ, our purpose in his plans, rooted in his immovable love and power?  Our thirteenth episode, “Confidence in Christ” invites us to consider these themes while prayerfully reflecting on Ephesians 2:1-10.

What strongholds or voices have limited our unique expression of creativity, or have marred our true identity? Are beauty and God's glory synonymous? Our twelfth episode, “The Golden Calf,” invites us to consider these themes as we prayerfully reflect on Hebrews 8:8-13.

In our eighth episode entitled “From Loneliness to Solitude,” we reflect on Hosea 2:14-23. Like Gomer, artists may seek affirmation from other loves, especially if our identity and worth is not rooted in Jesus Christ. Yet, the Lord desires to embrace us in his love, reaffirming us as his beloved and bride.

In our sixth episode “A Feast in the Wasteland,” we focus our attention, perhaps uncomfortably, on the prophecy found in Revelation 19:1-10: the Fall of Babylon. Economic success vs. spiritual desolation. The daily grind vs. the satisfying work of the Kingdom of God. Artists can often feel these tensions acutely.  As we reflect on this passage, we acknowledge that in the wasteland there is an invitation to hope and the heavenly fea...

In our fifth episode “Ex Nihilo,” we meditate on John 1:1-13. At Christmastide, the followers of Jesus Christ focus their attention to his birth. The Lord's Word and Light became flesh and dwelt among us who lived in a world marked by darkness and void.  His light continues to shine, reflected by his creatives as we engage in Holy Spirit-led creativity.
