Sermon Art

Jun 6, 2005

Yesterday in my weekend talks at church I mentioned my "fear" of ocean creatures (fish, sharks, etc…)  At the end of the first service, a dad and daughter approached me and handed me this:


There’s nothing greater than knowing that I’ve inspired the artist within.

(and at least she wasn’t sleeping…)  :)

    I’ve seen some pretty interesting examples of “pew art.” At least this one was relevant to your talk. Our son tends to draw scenes of marauding pirates or superhero comic strips.

    My church growing up had LOOOOONG sermons. My mom would bring toys for us to play with, and we’d sit on the floor, under the pews.
    One week, when I was about six, I had my David & Goliath action figures with me, and our pastor was preaching on the David & Goliath story. We were in the second row, and as I played, I moved forward out into the area in front of the first row.
    It kind of turned into a play-by-play, with the action figures moving in sync with the narration from the pulpit.
    Finally, our pastor said something about it, and my mother, horrified, pulled me back in and made me sit next to her.
    All I’ve got to say is I was ahead of my time. Interactive media nowadays is what every church wants!

    I think it’s so great that the parent let you see it. How old was the child? That’s a great thing for kids to do “in pew”. Sounds like you illustrated your points well =)
