Adult Ed: “Creativity: Where the Divine and Human Meet”

February 25, 2024 @ 8:30 am – 9:30 am

Adult EdChuck Clark is leading a study on Matthew Fox’s book, “Creativity: Where the Divine and Human Meet”. The class, beginning on Feb 4, will run for approximately six Sundays from 8:30 to 9:30 am. Books are available from Chuck Clark for $5. Childcare is available. “Fox believes the human creativity is what most differentiates us from other species – yet we rarely focus on it in our educational or religious institutions. Creativity is the key to our genius and beauty as a species, also to our capacity for evil. Because creativity is the key to both our genius and beauty as a species but also to our capacity for evil, we need to teach creativity and to teach ways of steering this God-like power in directions that promote love of life (biophilia) and not love of death (necrophilia). Many people undergo their most profound mystical experiences during acts of creativity but this is often left unacknowledged. What are the true sources of our creativity? What in life is not enhanced by creativity? How do we go about teaching and eliciting and nurturing creativity in ourselves and our children? How does the Holy Spirit work through us in our creative acts and processes? What is the relationship of wildness and creativity?” These are some of the topics treated in this book.
