NEW YORK — They don’t communicate faith in the traditional ways of producing newsletters or sending out tweets about programs or fundraising campaigns. Rather, they convey their faith in often ephemeral ways and express the heart and soul.

A writer, a Broadway singer/actress, a film editor, and a musician spoke at a lunchtime panel titled “Religion and the Arts” on April 1 as part of the Religion Communicators Council’s National Convention in New York. Other panelists provided personal reflections on how faith intersects with their creative work and in general about the many connections between religion and the arts.

Moderated by The Rev. Father James Martin, SJ, a Jesuit priest, editor and book author, the panel gave insight into the creative process and how faith is expressed through the vocation of performers and creators of artistic works.
