Why Discipleship Needs Creativity
I am a sucker for the “slow down and savor” stream of books. Rest, Sabbath, enjoying good food and warm places are the topics that will ignite my Amazon “1-Click” reflex like nothing else. The reason being is that I, like many others, see the stream of busyness and how it impacts my life as well as the shrapnel left behind when rest and Sabbath are left out of the equation.
Enter what I’d like to call “purposed creativity”
Time. Habit, Space. Hmm, sounds like another type of life I know...
Suffering comes. Life seasons change. We become too accustomed to the taste.
The creative work of becoming like Jesus in a social and political order that both longs for and rejects that reality.
