People involved in congregations where creativity is skillfully applied to meaning making, engaging the story of the Bible and caring for the world are touching their cities, neighborhoods, workplaces, families and friends in profound and prophetic ways.” -Divergent Church: The Bright Promise of Alternative Faith Communities, Tim Shapiro and Kara Faris.
How would ministry be different if our congregations felt fully equipped to share the story of Christ in more imaginative and moving ways? What would happen if the mature creativity of our leaders inspired others to expand their Kingdom Vision at church, in the community and at home? What if young people thought of churches as the place to turn when searching for a vision of a positive, hopeful future?
