Build the Dang Bridge

Your art is a bridge to a trusting relationship with your audience. How are you managing that bridge?


I'm not talking about surprising or even shocking your audience with a new sound, a new style or a different kind of book, song or film. Go ahead, pull a Swift and shift from country to pop. Pull a Lewis and morph from historian to theologian. Pull a Kanye and, well, drop an awesome gospel album with this fantastic track.


I'm talking about giving your creative best around every turn. Donning your smock with honesty, vision and purpose in your weird and offbeat fullness. Choosing to build that bridge in earnest, diligently chasing truth while offering your blood, sweat, prayers and tears on the canvas.


An ancient Teacher once offered this bit of wisdom, "Whoever can be trusted with little can also be trusted with much. Yet, whoever is dishonest with little will be dishonest with much." I think it's a fair challenge today.


Q. How are you handling your creativity? Your schedule? Your talent?


Q. What are you doing to honor your audience?


In other words, how are you building that dang bridge?
