Makoto Fujimara // A Letter [from a Christian Visual Artist] to North American Churches

Letter in Full Here // Excerpt Below

by Makoto Fujimara

Dear Churches of North America,

I speak to you as an artist.

An artist’s relationship with you has not been easy; we are often in the margins of your communities, being the misfits that we are. Artists often sit in the back, if they come to church at all, wear black and look menacing to you. But many of us, actually, sit in the front, we volunteer, and are first to be with the poor. You just don’t notice us. Some of us are even up in front preaching, and you call us pastors, but we consider ourselves really artists of the Word.

Keep Going...
