The article discusses how small churches can be a patron of arts by integrating it in daily life of worship, mission and ministry. A good starting place for a church is to articulate a theology of art where children can use simple art techniques to express theological themes from a Bible lesson. Another way to blend art, theological reflection and prayer is to pray the labyrinth on a journal page. It notes that art can help illustrate the message of special events like Christ the King Sunday.
