Creative Studio Monday
Monday 27 April, 10:00am
Our virtual Creative Studio meets for a creative session, led over Zoom. We hope it inspires you to create something!
Come and join us every Monday on Zoom, 10am-12noon UK time, for a time of creativity, and dare I say it, Divine Inspiration!
Today’s Scripture inspiration is from Ephesians 2: 14-18
14 For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, 15 by setting aside in his flesh the law with its commands and regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new humanity out of the two, thus making peace, 16 and in one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility. 17 He came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near. 18 For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit.
I’m sure that we are all familiar with the terms First World, Third World, Business Class, Economy, white, blue collars, and many other cultural, social divisions, not just economic that we invent for ourselves, to separate all of humanity one from another. But Christ has come to unite us all in one God and one Spirit.
We have separated all of humanity in so many diverse ways, that sometimes we do not think we even live on the same planet. We think the problems in one part of the globe does not affect our own ease and comfort in our own part.
But now if I may use a negative example, the coronavirus has brought home to bear that we are all one people. What has been unimaginable even a couple of months back has happened. The whole earth is in lockdown! We realistically cannot separate ourselves from each other, because the same problem affects us all. Even if you are rich enough to cloister yourself up in your huge mansion, even your food & supplies still has to be delivered by people that may be exposed to the virus.
And the virus has also shown that there is only one solution, one vaccine that everyone is frantically trying to find. No other medicines or solutions work. Its as if to say, there is no other way to life except through the one True Way.
We post the artworks, poetry, etc, that’s done at our studio sessions on Facebook. But its good to hear the sharing directly from the artists! We cultivate a safe and encouraging space for all the creatives here, that we may all grow in Christ, in spiritual as well as artistic & creative maturity. We are also blessed to see the special messages that the Holy Spirit imparts to each of us, due to the differences in our gifts and characters.
