Emerging Artists Collective

writing girl againMy college writing mentor Judith Hougen started an artist group in the Twin Cities called the Emerging Artists Collective, and we had our first meeting in November.

I cannot tell you how amazing it was to be gathered with other Christian artists (writers, filmmakers, visual artists) to discuss faith and writing.

The thing that stood out to me most was a quote Judy shared.  I have been looking online, and I can’t find the quote, but it went something like this: “The older I get, what I mean by Christianity and what I mean by writing are largely the same thing.”

I love that.

It’s true that in my own life, my faith and my writing have become terrifically wrapped up.  When I write, I feel like I have spent time with God.  It all feels very mysterious to me, but I love that too (of course I do).
