Erin’s post, “The Beauty of the Word,” about her experience with the St. John’s Bible really had an impact on me. (If you haven’t checked out the website yet, you should.) She said in the closing of her post, “I’m profoundly grateful that God has given people the gifts and the vision to be able to share his Word in this beautiful, unique way — and that those people have been faithful in using those gifts. It is a true gift.”
Art is such an honor to receive/experience. We can see the world through the eyes of others so that one of two things could possibly happen: either we connect with the art because there is something in our experience that we have in common with the artist, or if we struggle connecting with it we can ask God to give us insight into the mind of the artist thereby opening up our eyes to something newer, broader, and possibly more beautiful than we could have originally see.
With this in mind, I invite you to experience some of the art created by Wendell Kimbrough at the Atlas Theater in DC on Nov. 18th. Wendell is a gifted musician and artist who has led music at Restoration in the past and will be leading again at the eleven o’clock service on New Year’s Day. Two songs (Home and Little Birds) are available for downloading on hisFacebook page. He will have two other talented performers from NOVA joining him, and he has worked hard to make this something that families can attend.
Since Erin gave us an incredible visual resource that uses beauty to point us to our Father in Heaven, I thought I’d extend to you Wendell’s invitation to join him in doing the same through music. All the information is below:
