Creativity in Crisis

Presented by Rev. Dr. Karen Chamis


“Ideas have come from the strangest places” – Joyce Carol Oates


“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things” (Philippians 4:8). 


The last three years churches have been incredibly creative. We were challenged to reaffirm our communal values and many of us moved mountains so that those values would be upheld. During this time away, we will acknowledge the creativity that was birthed during the pandemic and reflect together in hope of what might be around the corner.
