Worship Arts at Duke Divinity // A Service of Praise, Music and the Arts
On October 7, 2010, the usual thrice-weekly community worship service in Goodson Chapel at Duke Divinity School took on a slightly different character. Led by the Gospel Choir and the Praise Team, we participated in a special all-music service. Also ministering during that time was the liturgical dance group and Katherine Hester, a visual artist, who painted throughout the service. It was an incredibly spirit-filled time and a witness to the passion for theology and the arts that is present at Duke Divinity (note that New Creation was not the driving force behind this service!). Here are a series of photos taken by Brian Bryant and posted by Dewey Williams (whose camera Brian was using since Dewey is in the Gospel Choir). The song used in the slideshow is "He Wants It All" by Forever Jones, a selection to which the liturgical dancers ministered.
