By Sam at Creative Theology
This past week, I was fortunate enough to present a lab at a youth conference here in Des Moines.
I was asked to speak about my book, as well as the self-publishing process. Here are a few of my notes from the sessions.Our response to creation is a response to Him. We see this reflected in both what we create, as well as what we destruct.The story doesn’t end on the East of the Garden. In Jesus, we are invited back in, and are called to join God in the renewal of all things.We are all creating bodies of work with our lives.With current technology, we can all create, edit, and critique work. This is a great opportunity, and one filled with traps.You must know your unique story and identify connection points between your story and the stories of those around you. Focus on where your stories overlap.
It was an honor to share a few thoughts with a room full of teenagers who are working out what it means to follow Christ in their lives and respond to God’s great work in and around them. So much potential packed into an overflowing room for both sessions.
On a related note, if you would like to have me speak at your event, or to your team, I’m taking one or two more speaking engagements through the end of the year, and a few after the first of the year.
If you’re interested, check out the Speaking section on this page, and shoot me an email.
