Dr. Sandra Yocum; Chanel Winston
University Professor of Faith and Culture
Dr. Sandra Yocum
In this illuminating discussion, our very own Dr. R. Darden Bradshaw of UD takes us through her unique understanding of faith and culture from the perspective of her expertise in art and design. What does it mean for a space and its material culture to hold and create memory? How is culture manifested visually - through life, worship/liturgy, work and family life - in such a way that "the visual becomes a living, breathing expression of faith"? What does it mean to trust and take certainty in the reality of that interior "nudge," that interior inspiration which we all feel but which we can never quite describe or put our finger on? All these and more are discussed by Dr. Bradshaw here.
