    I would like to see a wider discussion about ‘affective theological exploration’, ie.faith and spirituality explored in poetry, painting, dance, music. Much theological discourse is left-brain, systematic stuff that ignores the affective domain and the insights gained from intuition and emotion. After all, art is highly sacramental: a smaller, symbolic outer physical reality pointing to a greater outward and inward spiritual reality and grace. In the ‘greek’, a sacrament is a ‘musterion’ in the sense that it does not disclose its meaning to unbelieving eyes or ears. “Let the one who has ears to hear…”. Religious Art requires an engagement of heart and mind by faith, just as a sacrament does, but the people of ‘The Enlightenment’ and ‘The Age of Reason’ have belittled and caricatured these other means of revelation and faith expression and exploration. We need more sites like this one….

    This is a great suggestion, Chris. Hopefully we will have more posts exploring the mystery which is the object of both theology and art, and the emotions and experiences of encountering such a mystery!
