November Meeting of The Maker Space--Collage
Metaphor is something that is used to change up our thinking in the usual way. In trying to live a more creative life, we need to slow down our thought process to make different choices that may be more risky to our usual response, but will be a new thing that we have never done before. Jesus said in Matt. 5:14, "You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden." The participants meditated on what their city looked like and listened for a color for their city and words that jumped out at them. The results were beautiful and surprised them at what they heard. Their art was taken home and will still speak to them as they continue to look at their art. What would your city look like? Is it in the country, the city? What do the walls and gates look like? We all have walls, some good some bad. Walls are definition of where we begin and end. Walls keep the bad and distractions out. We can hide behind walls or we can feel protected by them. What or who are your censors? Censors are people or things that distract you or keep you from being the city on a hill that God created you to be. Is there someone who tells you that you can't be what you were designed to be? Walls are for keeping them out. Then you can be all you are meant to be. A city on a hill that God shines through and makes the world a better place!
