Christians serve a Creator God but we can often be surprisingly predictable. These notes provide and explain a wide range of 21 ideas to encourage creativity for when you plan ahead or prepare any task. There are 18 key ideas in two lists which include:

  • Work in a mixed personality group
  • Seek beauty
  • Focus on the end result
  • Study Bezalel and Oholiab (Exodus chs 31, 35, 36)
  • Recognise the spiritual gift
  • Use all your senses
  • Tell stories
  • Bring quieter members in
  • Keep fit

There are also three examples:

  • a brainstorming session
  • church staff working out of one office base
  • exercises that engage the ‘right brain’.

Read these notes and then get your creative juices flowing!
