Redemptive Creativity

Apparently a respected Christian leader asked another for advice about how to spend his next season of ministry and was told, "It's easier to create something good than to fix something that's broken." Of course, this is nowhere more true than in church world. It seems that about the easiest thing to do these days is to plant a church full of 20yearolds. As a 135 year old church wrestling through how to find God's future for us, we know it's not easy. But I take comfort in knowing that in the eschaton (the end) God isn't going to make all new things, he's going to make all things new. So while I'm serving here, I'll count myself in good company of the one who once created all new things, but now is committed to a redemptive creativity.
