Reflections On Prophetic Creativity…

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 […]

Where does the fountain of creativity exist? How do you access it? Good question, especially for those of us who derive all, or a portion of our income from some form of creative enterprise.

Five hundred years ago Europe was awakening from about 1000 years of cultural slumber that we call the Dark Ages. Two events caused this: the Renaissance and the Protestant Reformation.

Prophetic Worship – Part Two: How Prophetic Worship Affects the Arts by Vivien Hibbert
