Beauty reminds us that God is good. Being made in God’s image, we all can create and appreciate the beauty around us. Throughout our current series, The Way Forward, we’re calling on New Hopers to respond creatively to the weekly topics and Prayer and Practice prompts.
At the end of the series, we will showcase some of your creative submissions in an online art gallery that will be shared with New Hope and the broader community. We encourage creatives and artisans of all kinds to respond to the prompt below. We invite you to participate by way of dance, cooking, painting, ceramics, music, poetry, textiles, coding, or any other creative expression.
As you consider the ideas discussed in The Way Forward sermon series, what is a creative expression of your path forward in one or more of the areas?
