DISCOVERING YOUR SACRED IDENTITY

MEETING JESUS IN CREATIVE WRITING

(A new online course)

Did you know that creative writing can be a way to meet with Jesus? Throughout Church history, the writings of many well-known giants of faith have touched the lives of Christians everywhere. When we invite Jesus to join us as we write, God’s Spirit can use our words to draw us closer to Jesus. Creative writing can be a spiritual oasis, a purposeful art for yourself, and for the community around you.

Doing Life With God.

“There should not be a split between what we think and what we do. Once our personal connection to what is wrong becomes clear, then we have to choose: we can go on as before, recognizing our dishonesty and living with it the best we can, or we can begin the effort to change the way we think and live.”

- Wendell Berry

“If we are to recover what it means to be a creature, to live a given life in a given world, then Sabbath will be a central practice. It is in Sabbath that we learn to rest and wrest ourselves from the anxieties of achievement, of making and doing, that clamor inside and out.”

(Ragan Sutterfield)

“Living graciously within the boundaries of our life as it has been entrusted to us gives our life substance. Oddly enough, something of the will of God is contained in the very limits we often try to sidestep or ignore.”

“Conversion is a gift and an achievement. It is the act of a moment and the work of a lifetime. You can’t attain salvation by disciplines - it is the gift of God… While salvation cannot be attained by discipline around an unsurrendered self, nevertheless when the self is surrendered to Christ and a new center formed, then you can discipline your life around that new center - Christ.” - E.
