As I have spent the week thinking about my topic, and talking to people about it, I wondered about additional questions angles on my topic. Has graphic design created lazy Christians who rely too heavily on a fancy invitation card for sharing their faith instead of building real relationships with people. Or maybe people get so enamored by cool graphics and the experience it creates (particularly in larger churches) that people miss that a great church is not defined by how entertaining it is, and therefore miss out on a real relationship with Jesus and his bride. I’m open to thoughts and feedback.

Attached is the results of my freewriting exercise. One this is for sure, my handwriting is NOT the best! For the most part, I just thought about how the modern church has changed, creating a more diverse group of people who now faithfully attend church and identify themselves as Christians. This let me to dig into who are those people. Are they people who were turned off by fake Christians? Are they people who thought they just could never fit in or belong? But what I really wondered about are people who never identified with any faith, and therefore where never interested in going to church to begin with. What message do they need to see or hear to make them consider otherwise? Where would those messages be and in what form would that message occur? How often would they need to see that message. What ultimate form of visual communication would most effectively create a seeker out of a non-seeker?
While I think there is more freewriting to be had, it was nice to at least put a little “pen to paper,” or stylus pen to iPad in my case.
