A practical application of the last post (Overwhelmed) would be to spend less time honing ‘mechanics of conversion’ arguments and more time describing the irresistible object of conversion. It’s the picture that moves us. People need to see the art more than they need you to articulate precisely how a person is ‘taken’ by it. Frame it. Aim the fancy spotlights. Dare to offer only a few gushing, breathless words yourself.
The way in which you were ushered to the gallery is a wonder in and of itself (and people will get to that question eventually), but it designed to serve. It is a truth revealed to accent and support, never to distract. The Apostle Paul knew systematics pretty well but it was simplicity that made him persuasive. “For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.” (1 Cor 2:2)
Turn down the commentary and let the art speak.
