Called to Create
YOU WERE MADE TO CREATE!
Set sail with us for monthly creative art prompts. Creativity is a language of the soul and it builds space for community to grow!
O LORD, how many and varied are Your works! In wisdom You have made them all; the earth is full of Your riches and Your creatures. Psalm 104:24 ISV
Creativity invites us to explore and observe. To notice and play with shapes and shades, shadows and light. It is a crisp fresh canvas, ready to catch the jagged fragments of our days and speak them into unexpectedly into grace.
- invites us to slow down and experience the journey
- inspires us to see differently, to think outside the box
- facilitates problem-solving and uncertainty
- opens the door to questions and conversations we might never have asked or started
- engages us more deeply with our Creator
- cultivates community
- relieves stress
- and changes the way we interact with our world
“Creativity … is a universal trait of those made in God’s image.” Mike Cosper
We create, because we are created in the image of the One who spoke it all into being with a word … from nothing.
As we write, sing, dance, paint, plant, weave, build, plane, sculpt, bake, capture, design, decorate, make, dream, create we echo the immeasurable, mysterious, and limitless creativity of God.
“The diversity of the universe is a glimpse into the breadth of aesthetic appreciation in God’s mind. Each of us made in his image bears that creative gift … We bear it as a tiny reflection of his own vast creativity and skill.” Mike Cosper
Erwin McManus writes, “To create is to reflect the image of God. To create is an act of worship.”
