Just a quick note (forgot to mention it on my 9/28/10 post) about a current exhibition at Emory University in Atlanta: Islamic Calligraphy and the Qur'an | Michael C. Carlos Museum. If you're in the area and interested in Arabic calligraphy as an art form, check it out (I'm going to try).

I recently came across this post at the Lausanne Cape Town 2010 website. The author (a Christian from India) laments how ethnic conflict is rampant among various groups in northeast India. He struggles with how to personally respond, and even questions whether he is more motivated by his ethnic identity or by his Christian identity.

post by W. David O. Taylor about nonwestern artists and the upcoming issue of Connections, the missions journal of the World Evangelical Alliance. It is a 100 page double issue dedicated to arts in missions. Anyone who is interested in missions and the arts should check it out!
