EXPRESSION

We were made for Expression. Inside each of us is a profound lure towards the act of creation. As God created order out of chaos in the book of Genesis, we are capable of creation. Through the literary arts, visual and performing arts, and multiple languages of expression, we make meaning in our world, for others, and for ourselves. The cosmos was created by God with a word. What “word” would you speak into the world?
