Our theme for services and events this month is 'Creativity'. Here, we share some inspiring words of wisdom and some questions to give you food for thought.
Words of Wisdom
‘The war of an artist with [their] society is a lover’s war, and [they] do, at [their] best, what lovers do, which is to reveal the beloved to [themselves] and, with that revelation, to make freedom real.’
‘The most regretful people on earth are those who felt the call to creative work, who felt their own creative power restive and uprising, and gave to it neither power nor time.’
‘Before there is a breakthrough, there has to be a block. It’s only after we stop searching that the answer might arrive.’
‘The world always seems brighter when you’ve just made something that wasn’t there before.’
Questions for Reflection
1. Has creativity ever gotten you in trouble?
2. Has creativity ever healed or saved you?
3. Ralph Waldo Emerson said that two things prevent most of us from creative living: fear of public opinion and undue reverence for one’s own consistency. Might either of those be true of you?
