I took a course called “Art in Ministry” this semester. It was a 1-credit independent study course that we made up essentially as my “I don’t want to be deported” class. (I needed one credit to bump me up to full-time status in order to meet the requirements of my student visa). It was actually a great class and a change from all the paper-writing that I do in every other class. I read a few books (Art for God’s Sake by Philip Ryken and Amazing Grace by Jonathan Kozol). I was asked to submit some of my thoughts from the readings and to create an art piece in response to both of them. This is it:
I’ll write more on that later. For now, I need to study for the final I have tonight!
