Creativity (noun): to make or bring into existence something new.    This book of monastic wisdom, practices, and reflection will guide you to open yourself in fresh ways to God’s creative spirit. Chapters include:   * Who are you supposed to become? * Stop and listen. Pay attention. * Creativity is our response to God * The church needs artists * Through the seasons of the church year * Creative teachers and teachings   The result is an inspirational guide for practical living. From the book:   “We at the Community of Jesus, like other monastic people, don’t take vows to be creative. In fact, just the idea of doing such a thing might strike your eye and hear as odd—as if someone said, “I vow to be funny.” Or “I vow to be highly intelligent.” We usually think of creativity as a gift that some are given, and some, not.             But we do see it a little bit differently. Creativity is not among our vows, but it a guiding principle—a conviction that we have for ourselves as God’s people.   “Each of us has been given the divine spark of creativity and imagination, and as we grow in our conversion to Christ, so should our gratitude and reverence for these gifts.”             —The Rule of the Society of St. John the Evangelist
