God is an artist …

God is an artist and he is beautiful. He has woven his image into the fabric of our lives, which explains our drive to create things which are beyond us and which we don’t always understand. Perhaps more important, he has issued a call to us that carries with it the possibility of obedience or disobedience: the call to respond to his beauty with creative worship. … God calls us to create a space in time for ourselves and others to meet with God, to gaze upon his beauty and to worship him.

– From my morning readings in “Scribbling in the Sand – Christ and Creativity” by Michael Card.

We can answer that call with art, with craft, with music.  We can answer it with hospitality, with service, with fellowship.  It doesn’t matter how we answer it.  What’s important is that we answer it.

    That is truly so very beautiful. I have been thinking a lot of the way our lives need to reflect his beauty. Obedience is challenging!!!
