I Believe That Any Act of Creativity Is An Act Against Destruction — Mary W. Cox
During Lent we are inclined to focus on improving self and our Lenten discipline, but despite our reflective efforts the rest of the world continues to spin seemingly out of control.
It is incumbent upon us all to continue to be a part of the world during Lent and offer God’s creative gifts to our neighbors.
We all have the potential to be creative, for creativity is not limited to the arts.
Consider the top chef, the master brewer, the teacher, the carpenter, the list goes on and on. Every skill we have or acquired can benefit from creativity.
Use your time during your Lenten meditations to focus on how you might bring more creativity to your day.
Mary Cox reminds us that a creative collaboration is an act of trust in God who is “mighty to save.”
Our Sufi friend Tom responded to yesterday’s post with this quote from the Sufi poet Rumi. It certainly says yesterday’s message much better.
“Come, come, whoever you are,
Wanderer, worshipper, lover of leaving — it doesn’t matter,
Ours is not a caravan of despair.
Come, even if you have broken your vows a thousand times.
Come, come again, come.”
