This week in church, we talked about making things.
The story was told of some university's intro process for new students: they would be given a tour that ended them in the art studio in the centre of campus. They would walk in, and the art teacher would simply ask, "what do you want to make today?"
What a beautiful, simple, and deceptively difficult question!
What do you want to make today?
In a world where it can feel like everything we are doing is for someone else, whether our boss, partner, children, or friends, how much more fun and meaning would we have in our lives if we asked ourselves this question more often?
This week in church we talked about being made.
The idea of a Creator God may not appeal to you all that much (it certainly doesn't make sense to me in any literal way), but if you look at it as a story with a message, what is the message? That we, and everything in existence, are beautiful, loved, and good.
That's a pretty nice idea to meditate on.
