Creativity and the Christian
Of all people on earth, Christians should be the most creative. I truly believe this because we are not only created in God’s image (who is first presented in the Bible as the Creator), but we are children of God. Children take on their parents’ characteristics, after all.
That’s why I am so thrilled about the creativity that’s been happening at Edinbrook the last few years. There are more artists emerging than we ever knew we had! They’re producing songs, drama, paintings, creative expressions of worship, dance, writings, poetry, and more. Creativity is beginning to ooze out of our church more all the time — an indication that we’re becoming more like our Heavenly Father, the Great Creator.
Yesterday evening was just one more example of God’s Spirit at work among us. The Namesake Band presented a first-ever at Edinbrook — a CD Release Concert entitled, A Group Called. With songs all originating with Edinbrook artists, feverishly led by our worship pastor, Chris Atkins, we were blown away by amazing songs of worship and praise — new songs that honored the Lord. As I sat through the concert last night, I couldn’t help but be amazed at what God is doing with us.
It’s rare. It’s exciting. It’s God-honoring. It’s quality. It’s only the beginning.
Of all people on earth, Christians should be the most creative. It’s really fun to see that becoming a reality right in our midst.
