A Creative Advent: Scripture, Poetry, and Christian Imagination

On Dec 9th, Drew Masterson (Coracle Dir. of Communications & Development) and Rick Mastroianni (Coracle Spiritual Director) discussed the role of the imagination and creativity in the Christian life.  They share Rick’s poem “Joseph Speaks” as an example of creative engagement with scripture, as well as a handful of other examples.  They drove home the point that creativity is not just for “Creatives” but is part of how our Creator God has called us to move through the world. Their two final questions are good ones for any season:  What beautiful thing are you going to create today?  Who are you going to share it with?
