Word-Smith to Image-Smith

With one generation aging and the next emerging, “word-people” are rapidly declining. To demand that an “image-smith” become a “word-smith” is both shortsighted and unfair. Expecting an “image-smith” to step into a bygone-era and learn as a “word-smith” falls just short of quenching the Spirit direction. Stamp out one’s desire to express what’s in the heart and they shut down. Some leave. Others move on to a more visual, artsy faith community.
