It’s finally coming! It’s your chance to discover or uncover the creative gifts that God has placed in you.
The unfortunate truth is that once we have found our way in the so-called “real world”, even if we become successful in a chosen profession, many of us discover we’ve lost something of ourselves. We lose the simple pleasure that we once cherished of being who God created us to be and doing what God created us to do. We may even feel our gifts are lost forever. But are they?
Our gifts are not from God to us, but from God through us to the world. When we fail to use these gifts, we suffer the same way a person accustomed to regular physical activity may feel pent up, out of sorts, and off-balance after going several days without exercise. When we try to live without exercising our artistic gifts, we may feel restless and empty. Life lacks fullness. Something buried deep within longs to emerge.

If you are ready to uncover those buried gifts, you are invited to join us as we embark on an 8 week journey of exploration with The Creative Call. An online group has been set up where we can “meet” to discuss what we’re learning, share new insights, and encourage one another to experiment with our gifts. It will be facilitated by Lisa Scott, of Wisdom Pursuit. Though the holiday season is a busy time, there is no better time of the year to provide so many opportunities for exploring our creative gifts!
