I'm reading, no, devouring a book by Madeleine L'Engle called Walking on Water Reflections on Faith and Art. It is amazing. I am really enjoying this book. Her writing just speaks to me, even when it is above my head in meaning. She talks about the fact that you can be Christian, but if what you produce is garbage then it is more profane than some artist who doesn't believe in God yet produces work that is glorious. The neat thing is, I was just thinking about this subject. How I liked it so much better when Christian publishing wasn't the big market. We lose something when we make it so financial. What does Jesus think of this? I think He is probably a little disappointed in us. I think it's not quite cricket.
