Walking On Water

2 Jan

I received a copy of “Walking On Water” by Madeleine L’Engle having never read anything by her, but knowing of the impact that her “A Wrinkle In Time” had had.  I was pleasantly surprised by this book.  I love L’Engle’s approach to the idea of creativity and art in conjunction with Christianity.  The wholistic view that she takes in refreshing.  As a worship pastor, I am always looking for different and better ways to be creative and ways to inject creativity into our worship services, and I have been both challenged and convicted by L’Engle’s words found here.  I love what she says on page 123, “When we take ourselves too seriously, as the chief or only object of God’s interest, then we fail to understand the magnitude of his love and concern for us.”  These words are so true! We so often, as Christians, try to be as somber and stoic as possible, and we fail to explore the depths of the creativity that God has woven into creation.

I would strongly recommend this book to anyone!
