Great scene.

Favorite Heath Ledger scene, or one of them. Sucks when the good ones go...

*I thought I posted this to both blogs but discovered today it was only over at the Art & Faith blog.  The part below the video was was my response (originally a second post entitled "Follow-up.")

In regards to Brian's comments, I can hear some of you wondering, "but isn't that the duty of the artist? To help the non-artists among us to see things they can't see on their own?" To that I say, "almost." It's a fine line, but not quite it, at least in my opinion.

I firmly believe we, as artists, are called to help people come into fellowship with God on many different levels - through performance, through song, through visual arts, mutli-media, etc. But we're not to worship for them. We're here to help them learn to see more, to look deeper and to listen to everything, not just the surface noise.

If I create something that helps you come into worship with God? I'm humbled. Honestly. But if I create something that helps you see a new way of coming to a place of worship on your own? Something that you learn that you can take with you? That's even more thrilling for me.

It's cliche, but true, that "teach a man to fish" saying. I want my ideas and pieces to not be the end result. I want them to be a springboard for more. The little rock in the water that sends ripples further out.
