The Insurmountable Conundrums of Faith

In March, I heard this deep theologian/beautiful musician, give a lecture and concert at Calvin College. He has a Masters in creative writing. Some notes from indie musician Sufjan Stevens' talk:

"Art is not a tool for which we utilize our causes...To make art is to be wholly entrenched in the creative process of the creator. Creativity becomes possible when man ignores limitations and recognizes an unconditional love."

Stevens said, "I'd like my work to disengage from me completely but work in a way without me doing anything. Allow art, music, worship - any form of expression - work on it's own. Let it separate from any original intention."

If you get a chance to hear him in concert...GO.
