In our sixth episode “A Feast in the Wasteland,” we focus our attention, perhaps uncomfortably, on the prophecy found in Revelation 19:1-10: the Fall of Babylon. Economic success vs. spiritual desolation. The daily grind vs. the satisfying work of the Kingdom of God. Artists can often feel these tensions acutely. As we reflect on this passage, we acknowledge that in the wasteland there is an invitation to hope and the heavenly feast hosted by the Bread of Life - Jesus Christ.
United Adoration's "A Place of Beauty Podcast" is a 21-week series to complement our devotional, "A Place of Beauty." Every Monday, from Advent to Easter, we invite artists (and non-artists) to meditate on Scripture and to consider their identity, struggles, and creative process in the light of the True Creator, the Triune God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. To purchase the devotional, visit Amazon or Barnes and Noble.
