On the Graffiti Tip


Continuing on from the video on David Choe, is this video I found about graffiti on the streets of Shanghai. Graffiti is all about expression and it’s wonderful to hear mainland Chinese talk about creativity in a way that I think most “churched” people do not articulate. There’s an awareness of ideas, identity, and expression that is amazing. Perhaps this is why people associate the church/Christianity with backwardness, but I believe that we have the theological language to inform, encourage, and support creativity and expression.

When we create we bear the image of God most fully. Even when we graffiti.

May we be as daring as these artists in Shanghai.
