We send out a weekly email newsletter at Crossroads, and typically one of the pastors writes a memo. This week featured a memo from myself, and I decided to talk about this whole creativity process…
I love being creative. Whether it’s writing a song or coming up with a new concoction in the kitchen, I find joy when allowing myself to create. Unfortunately as time has passed, these moments seem to come less frequent. In years past, it just seemed easier to enjoy making art.
Do you ever feel the same way?
After reading a couple different articles and a book called Untitled: Thoughts on the Creative Process, I decided to try and create something every day in February. I had to face the challenge of the blank piece of paper.
We are made in God’s image, and I believe one of those ways is having a sense of creativity. God’s beautiful creativity can be seen every time you walk outside, or look in the mirror for that matter.
If you want to be creative, the only thing I would suggest is to just do it. Get a blank piece of paper and draw. Sing along with your favorite album. Open the cupboards in the kitchen and make a new dish. Whatever you make does not need to be amazing. That is not the point. However, you might be amazed what you come up with.
