Post Image

The creative process for Christians is not some mindless activity where the Holy Spirit just takes over and creates through us. This kind of thinking suggests that we have nothing to offer and are simply empty conduits to be used by God. This not only devalues us as artists and as people, it downplays the […]

Practical Steps to Engaging the Holy Spirit in Your Creative Process

Post Image

It’s just ‘what we do.’ However, now that we are His, so is our expression – but not in some robotic way. This idea of ‘more of Thee, less of me’ can cause us to be self-depricating, falsely […]
