Creation in Action

Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar

This month we are exploring creation as our theme. We are not just beings who are created, but we are also creators ourselves. Life can be thought of as a process of evolution, of creation and re-creation. Our ability to create something new is a defining quality of our humanness. It is what makes us different from other creatures. From certain theological perspectives, our ability to be creative makes us like God. From a purely scientific view, it makes us intelligent agents of evolution. This Sunday we will explore some improvisational creating in worship that will allow us to witness this unique and potentially holy human attribute in action.  

See you Sunday,  
Marlin

Create With Intention, Part 2

Bishop Carlton Pearson

 “I’m not into organized religion. I’m into believing in a higher source of creation, realizing we’re all just part of nature.” 
—Neil Young 

Join me in the Contemporary service to discover the benefits of creating with intention. We will create out of habit and necessity. Let’s explore what happens when we apply focus and intention to our creative efforts. After all, creation is part of our spiritual biology and mental ingenuity. Let’s make the most of it.
