But when you really think about it, who could be more creative than God, who created every thing and every person? I think it would be quite reasonable to say that He is a masterful and incredibly creative Creator. And so, over the past thirty years of our marriage and ministry, Steve and I have strongly believed that creativity, music, drama, humor, art, and yes, even dance, should be welcome in the places where we gather to worship a creative God.
In our service yesterday we saw a beautiful example of that creativity--creativity fueled by vision and passion and excellence.
We celebrated Heritage Day in our service, looking all the way back to 1949 when our church was first begun by a handful people, (We were especially honored to have one of those founding members in the service with us.)
After all the music, reminiscing, and speaking and before the potluck lunch (may I just say church women are amazing cooks?) we watched a presentation by the church’s dance/drama team which Sarah is a part of. It was one of those presentations that makes you want to cry and smile all at the same time, even as chills dance up and down your spine.
Creativity in the church?
It’s a beautiful thing.
