MAKE YOUR OWN TRAIL ————

JIM PECHA, B.ARCH., MINISTER OF CREATIVITY
copyright 2015, CHRISTIAN ARTIST —————–
Sharon and I made our own trails and sometimes she would walk behind me a distance just to blaze her own path. If she got lost, she would just call my name, and we would search for each other. In the thick colorful bushes on mountain sides, I would have difficulty seeing her, even when she wore bright shirts. Sharon had simple faith in God, accepting what she heard in Church when she was young. I wanted to know more and God revealed part of his creative complexity to me. I tried to share what I had learned, but it only upset her simple beliefs; so I quit trying. Instead I found other people willing to have conversations about God and his creative processes. God was as diverse as the colors on the hill and bringing them all together was enriching and fulfilling. I thank God for his acceptance of the simple believers as I do for his acceptance of my inquisitiveness. As an artist I enjoy the variations of colors, textures and lighting and for allowing me to make my own trail, with him as a companion hiker.
