Creativity as a Spiritual Practice, Vanessa Zoltan and Stephanie Paulsell – Video and Discussion Outline

Dr. Stephanie Paulsell and Ms. Vanessa Zoltan, MDiv frame creativity as a spiritual practice.

Questions for Discussion:

  1. What does it mean to take the old and the new, and bring them together in a highly creative way?
  2. What kinds of sacred readings can be done with Scripture, and what kinds of sacred readings can be done with other texts? How might God speak through current films and books—the vernacular of our youth—and how might our programming choices reflect that unique way in which God might choose to speak?
