Top ten art and faith events

On this list are some of the loveliest, most meaningful Christian arts gatherings I've been privileged to enjoy in the past, along with a few exciting events of which I have only read about and dreamed of attending. Certainly, if I were not bound by constraints of time, budget, work and family obligations, I would put every one of these, my top ten "must-do" events for the coming year or so, on my travel calendar. I think believers who enjoy seeing faith expressed in the arts would be blessed by participation in any of these special experiences.
