Item description for Creativity and Divine Surprise: Finding the Place of Your Resurrection by Karla M. Kincannon...
Overview Become a co-creator with God! Find new points of grace as you gain insights about yourself and about God. Deepen your spirituality as you tap into your own God-given gift. Prepare to have your senses finetuned to the Holy in all things. Creativity is usually defined in the most narrow of ways and associated only with artists or children. "Creativity is so much more than art making," writes Kincannon. "It's a tool for navigating through everyday experiences to find the sacred in each God-given moment. Those who believe they lack creativity have relegated it to remote regions of their life, burying it under the need for security, approval, and control. However, ... creativity does not die; it simply waits to be unearthed and set free." Creativity and Divine Surprise couples insightful meditations with thoughtful exercises that will help you celebrate your divine spark and connect with God. Can't draw a straight line? Colorblind? No worries! If you yearn for God and desire greater awareness of God's presence in life, you're ready for this book. Through Kincannon's words, you'll see creativity as a source of revelation, joy, healing, and fulfillment, and we all need those things. Ready to dance, draw, paint, take pictures - masterpieces or not?! Let the Creator work in you through your creativity, so that you become God's masterpiece

Waking the slumbering creative spirit Feb 19, 2007
If you ever thought you might have an interest in art, or if you never did, this book will open your eyes to the creativity that lies within you. The author is an artist but she writes for a much wider audience, comparing the artistic process to the spiritual journey. The last time I played with watercolors was 1977, but author Kincannon so inspired me that I signed up for a watercolor class and I'm loving it! If Ms. Kincannon had one message for me, it was "Take time for yourself and listen to what's inside you." This book can be life changing if you allow it to do its work.
Steps to meet the Lord using one's creative gifts Feb 23, 2006
This book is for someone seeking a closer relationship with God and has two tracks--one for a spiritual seeker and one for a person who uses his/her creativity to express faith or relationship with the Lord. It gives good exercises to use to bring us closer to the Lord through creative means. I am using this in a workshop in a few days and trust it will be of help to the participants.
