CT Weblog: Some May Be Offended by Biola Exhibit on Reaching Culture
Picked up on an LA Times article (2/15/03) about an interactive exhibit titled ‘The Recovery of Ritual: The Spiritual Quest of the Post-Boomer Generations‘ at Biola University exploring challenges that churches face in attracting younger worshipers. The interactive exhibit, which will be on display through February 21st, is a joint research project by two So.Cal. professors, Biola’s Richard Flory and USC’s Donald Miller. An interactive CD and web site are forthcoming. What may be offensive is that the art installation has a small electric train with “Facts” as its engine, “Faith” as the second car, and “Feeling” as the caboose, depicting the metaphor of Campus Crusade’s “Four Spiritual Laws,” which may be one of the “outdated tracts or pamphlets on how to become a Christian”.
