  • Be willing to be in regular communication with Alabaster’s.  Relationships are valued.  Please openly submit comments or suggestions for things that need to be addressed, and we welcome any requests for prayer.  This needs to be a supportive environment.  “Art nurtures community and community nurtures art.”  (Author and songwriter Andrew Peterson) 
  • Alabaster’s provides resources for hearts to draw near to the One perfect in beauty. One connotation of alabaster is purity of devotion.  Because both written and visual arts are intensely dynamic and able to woo or repulse others from the love and holiness of God and because Alabaster’s is a business founded on the Christian message and convictions, we ask that artists, writers, and referral sources ensure that their offerings align or do not negate Alabaster’s Ink Well’s mission and faith statements.
