Honest Art - Bono & Eugene Peterson

In this short film, Bono and Eugene Peterson in their admiration for the Psalms give challenge to Christians to create "honest" art, art that expresses the true natures of the human soul and the true nature of God. Surely, half the time there is an uncomfortable clash between the two some of us fall into the trap of hiding. Instead, Bono and Peterson encourage Christians to walk the line. At the very least, a thought provoking discussion revealing through the Psalms that Jesus is not Lord solely in spite of our circumstances, but through them. His mighty holiness is revealed perfect through our weakness. 

Three different times I begged the Lord to take it away. Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
— 2 Corinthians 12:9-10
