An intimate community of eight poets, visual artists, creative writers and songwriters registered for the retreat. Our gratitude to be together shaped our perception of COVID restrictions as mechanisms for gathering, not hindrances to fellowship. One participant had never attended our church, but had been searching for a creative community. Seeing this retreat on our church website was an answer to prayer!
Creativity is one of the most effective ways to deal with stress and refresh our connection with God. And as we share what we’ve created, others have the opportunity to enter into the oasis generated by creative expression.
