At times a piece of visual art opens possibilities for creating sermons or reflections on Scripture readings in worship. Sculpture is an art form that can lend itself to such proclamation or contemplation.
As worship arts, the visual arts include architecture, sculpture, painting, mosaic, and the crafting of artifacts. These arts create durable objects that may be seen and handled. Although of lesser importance in the biblical perspective than some other art forms, the visual arts may serve as effective windows into the holy.
