Sunday's Gathering

This past Sunday, Krissy Kludt offered an invitation to trust our own calling as artists as part of a wider mandate to create as God has created us.

This was the first part of a two-night learning journey around creativity and spiritual practice that will finish up May 19. 

From Krissy's teaching:

Creativity is part of our participation
in God’s renewal and restoration of the world.
Creativity is about keeping entropy at bay.
It's about fighting death and destruction.
It's about freedom.
It's about resurrection.
Creativity is about God's work
of making all things new.
