The gospel always has a context. The appreciation of beauty and the meaning of human existence are all bundled up in life. Once a congregation understands those concepts, the arts can become a profound medium for worship and for outreach. At Philpott Memorial Church in Hamilton, the arts have become a means of communicating the gospel in worship and a means of engaging our unbelieving friends who have a fascination for the arts. Christians who are gifted artistically have come to play a significant role in both.
