Creator God, Creating Still: Creativity as Spiritual Practice
September 2–30 • 6:00 p.m. • Crouch Chapel
On Wednesdays in September, we have invited persons to speak about how creative expression has been formational to their life of faith (and vice versa). Because we have so many creative people in our area, we will also invite people from the church and/or community to display some of their craft during that time. Come join us as we explore the intersection of creativity and spirituality in our lives.

Recovering the Art of Biblical Blessing
September 9–30 • 6:00 p.m. • MB304 • Led by David Blackmon
In his book To Bless the Space Between Us John O’Donohue writes, “It would be infinitely lonely to live in a world without blessing. The word blessing evokes a sense of warmth and protection; it suggests that no life is alone or unreachable.” In this study, we will explore scripture and see how blessing us understood, beginning with Jesus’ beatitudes. We will also consider how we can be agents of blessing to those in our lives today.
