NOT out of Commission
Here is an intreguing example of a commissioning service for artists and other cultural workers.

Although we need to make some distinctions (artists and engineers do not hold office in the instutional church!) it is time that we recognize that culture-makers are doing the Lord's work as much as ministers, elders and deacons, just in a different sphere.

I'm not sure we need commissioning services, but we do need to lay waste to the false dualism which denigrates the importance of our cultural calling.
