So why am I telling you all of this? Because I want you to check out their links on my blog under "Check it Out." The artists, the musicians, the "out-of-the-box" thinkers are just so valuable for our societies, for culture AND YES for our faith communities! Unfortunately I have witnessed and experienced that it is just these forward, out-of-the box thinkers who get run out of institutional religion. And perhaps nowhere more so than here in Germany. (as an aside, I believe that WW2 left a gaping deficit of creative and intuitive people, which is eerily tangible in many aspects of the culture even today). This is a tragedy! It is as if we are deliberately plugging up the holes where the light and fresh air come in. Isn't that what they call suicide?
Of course i know that not everyone shares my taste, but that is not the point. Expose yourself to something new!!
