Cafe Hopping (7/15)
Weekly roundup of (mostly) arts-related chatter around the web:
- Extraordinary church buildings: 50 seriously impressive/unique structures. I like #4, #30, and #40.
- Sounds of Savannah: A few great concerts from the Savannah Music Festival are available in their entirety, including the Ebene String Quartet playing Debussy, Faure, and Ravel.
- Harry Potter, Jesus, and Me: A beautiful reflection by Andrew Peterson on the Harry Potter series and its impact on his own life.
- Letter to a Young Musician: Charlie Peacock writes, “Ask yourself how your musical life might cooperate with God in restoring rightness, doing justice, and showing mercy. Wonder out loud how music might remove impairments to healthy functioning. See your musical life as one faithful way to care for God’s creativity — people and place, and all of creation. Be in perpetual dream mode about how music might exist for the good of people and to proclaim God’s excellence as Creator.” Read the whole letter.
- Wimbledon, Typographied: This has been around awhile, but it’s still impressive every time I see it. The last match of last year’s Wimbledon between Nadal and Federer, reimagined.
