Retailing God. Podcast: Live At Hales Segment 2 of 3

f_crown_05_h There is no question that retailing God is becoming big business. But what is the thoughtful, spiritual creative to make of it? Does the T-shirting of faith trivialize God? Do the "bobble-head Jesus figures," diminish the divine or accentuate God's humanness in Jesus? Is making money off of retailing God an abomination like moneychangers in the Temple or a wonderful way to blend faith and making a living? Does a high-end, artful fashion statement represent a more appropriate direction for integrating faith and fashion? In this episode of The Kindlings Muse we explore the high and low art of the "Retailing of God" enterprise. We start with a special feature from our own Bill Hogg, "Mr. Hogg goes shopping," followed by our guests: Shawn McNally from Vox Sacra, internationally awarded stylist Annie Willhoite from the Bocz salon and David Wahl from novelty retailer Archie McPhee.

  1. Why are Vox Sacra T-Shirts so expensive? Will you expand Vox Sacra to sell other types of Christian products?

  2. What about fashion as art? Thus buying expensive, well made, beautiful clothes would be similar to having original art works in one's home? Could this type of fashion/art be a form of sacred art for today (like sculpture/stained glass) as it can teach and be beautiful?

  3. Are we more offended than Jesus? Do we take our sensability about Jesus more seriously than Jesus probably takes Himself?

  4. The option has always been the same when one encounters Jesus: scorn or worship. Will we act like idiots and wear things that are silly or will we reflect reverence care and beauty?
