God and Creativity

Genesis 1:27 "So God created man in his own image,
in the image of God he created him;
male and female he created them."

  • The creative talent that God has created in us as human beings is amazing!
  • Bringing together the various elements, how do we perceive ourselves as creative beings in God’s space?
  • In the beginning God created: God creates and calls us to discover the space he makes.
  • The first artist is God. The first masterpiece God creates is “space”. Then God fills it out.
  • How do we see our creativity….is it a gift from God?….what should we do with it?
  • Is there a space to concentrate on creative process? Are there adequate strengths in relationship to creative collaboration?

Sometimes it's easy to pigeonhole what "being creative" means. A lot of people say they are not creative - because they don't draw or paint or sculpt or writer music. I think it's important to clarify that being creative or creating can include things like:
cooking a meal - that is creating something edible out of a bunch of random ingredients
being a friend - that is creating relationship
When viewed from that angle everyone can feel included.

Amen Kel. I really like the idea that being a friend is creative!
