The Asterisk Awards: Culture

vol. 3, num. 1 :: 2004.01.02 — 2004.01.15

The inaugaral culture awards issue will give our readers a chance to nominate great cultural works and events of 2003, not just according to likes and dislikes, but we want to know--what changed you?



And the winners are . . .

An opportunity to take note of an individual and an organization who have been influential in the past year, practically serving and helping others serve the God who is Lord of all of life.


Asterisk a-what?

A little background to explain what went into our decisions about why and how to conduct the First Annual Asterisk Awards.


Film 2003

The Lord of the Rings series emerges as the popular favorite, with many lesser-known works making the list as well.

Music 2003

Evidence that, though our lives for all intents and purposes look similar, our cultural experiences vary widely.

Television 2003

Who knew there were so many sports fans lurking about the site?

Radio 2003

What would we do without public radio?

Books 2003

Looking for a good read? This list has something for everyone.

Theatre 2003

In sum: we haven't seen enough.

Art 2003

From lesser-known to well-known artists, visual art remains an important element of culture.

Internet 2003

A look at where we spend our time in the so-called virtual world.

The Church 2003

The institutionalized body of believers bears both signs that we've missed the mark and signs that there's a lot to be hopeful about.

Even in a country you know by heart
its hard to go the same way twice
the life of the going changes.
The chances change and make a new way.
Any tree or stone or bird
can be the bud of a new direction. The
natural correction is to make intent
of accident. To get back before dark
is the art of going.

Wendell Berry
“Traveling at Home” from Traveling at Home
