Creative works - such as paintings, poetry and music, for example - can convey timeless truths.

That’s the heart of “Illuminate,” a new conference on the intersection of art and faith - set for Thursday, April 4th and Friday, April 5th - at Southern Adventist University in Collegedale.

The presentations, performances, workshops and conversations at “Illuminate” will feature participants from across the country and around the Chattanooga area.

Among them: Charlie Newton, artist and preacher, who with his wife Iantha runs the SPLASH Youth Arts Workshop here in Chattanooga.
