Who is this Jamin guy anyway?
I am the husband of one and the father of nine. I was created to sing, to worship, to encourage, and to be steady. I am the Owner & Executive Director of Trinity Arts Center, a multi-disciplinary Arts Center in Eastern Tennessee, and the President of Trinity Arts Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization focused on funding arts education and performance. I've been involved with four music projects in my life -- Hot Pink Turtle, Spin Radio, Stand Like Stone, and of course, Jamin Rathbun.

Ugly Preaching
Casey Tygrett wrote an article Friday about ugly preaching. His proposition... What if we make a commitment to preach ugly? If we no longer allow ourselves to be satisfied with complete, easy to digest information, and instead put the reality on display for people to do with what they wish?

It's a good observation about a tendency to wrap our teaching up with a simple, easy-to-digest, moral, preferrably with some kind of acrostic memory aide. = ) Casey reminds us how Jesus taught... Not with interesting plot twists and detailed explanation -- but with crude and unpoetic analogy, leaving the "hidden" message to be discovered by the listener.

I'm tempted to expound with my thoughts on the article but -- in the spirit of "ugly preaching", I'll just let you come to your own conclusion. = )

Casey posts frequently on The Ooze and The Next Wave.
