God's Presence in Sacred Space
A Webinar Presentation
"Creativity is so much more than art making," writes Kincannon. "It's a tool for navigating through everyday experiences to find the sacred in each God-given moment. Those who believe they lack creativity have relegated it to remote regions of their life, burying it under the need for security, approval, and control. However, ... creativity does not die; it simply waits to be unearthed and set free."
This webinar, based on Kincannon's book Creativity and Divine Surprise, couples insightful meditations with thoughtful exercises that will help you celebrate your divine spark and connect with God. In this webinar we will:
- Reflect on the wisdom of the Genesis creation narrative and how it relates to our own creativity
- Learn how to recover an awareness of the sacred in everyday life
- Receive some tips and tools for putting this conversation into practice
