Breaking the Jar: Art's Untapped Potential in the Evangelical Church

with Jonathan Tame

Two common ways of valuing a work of art are the aesthetic way (do I like it?) and the commercial way (what would this fetch in an auction?). However, as Christians we need to think more about the spiritual value of art. This is when art works in people's hearts and lives to bring them closer to reality - which ultimately means to God himself. When the woman in Mark 14 broke the jar of expensive perfume to anoint Jesus, the place was filled with fragrance. He affirmed her and said she had done a beautiful thing - which people would always speak about. This talk will look at how we might 'break the jar' and release the potential of art in the evangelical church. It will inspire you to value both art and artists in your church, and discover new ways your mission can be strengthened and supported.
