The Arts as Tools for Spiritual Growth
with Dr. Terry Glaspey

For many Christians, the arts sit in the background. Painting, music, literature, movies, and other forms of art exist mostly for decoration or entertainment. But Dr. Terry Glaspey believes the arts should play a more prominent role in our lives and are an important tool for our spiritual growth and formation. The arts can move our hearts, stretch our thinking, and inspire us to a deeper connection with God. In this richly illustrated talk, Dr. Glaspey will explore the unique ways that the arts can make a profound difference in your spiritual life.
