Jeanette Clift George, Artistic Director, AD Players "As for renewing my soul through sacred play-the awesome event in theater is that in fellowship with God, we believer artists bring something out of nothing. In that split second of harmony with God the Creator my soul is refreshed and I know God a little better than before." In Sacred Play, readers will explore the need for creativity in the local church. Sacred play is that moment when intense joy find expression in a worship-like activity before God. Sacred play is your damaged self expressing the beauty, wonder, and celebration in which God delights. If you've longed to unlock your own creative heart--or your church's--then Sacred Play is for you. Readers are invited to discover their personal hidden artistry and shown how to form teams of creative Christians to help your entire church experience the joy of knowing the heart of our creative God. Practical exercises included at the end of each chapter assist pastors and lay readers to rediscover sacred play and unlock the creativity that exists within themselves and within their congregations. Is Sacred Play OK? What if someone said to you, "You've lost something since you've become a Christian"? During a drama workshop for pastors, Bill Shereos found anew what he had lost since becoming a Christian: the capacity for "sacred play." Sacred Play occurs during those times when intense joy finds expression in a worship-like activity before God. Sacred Play occurs when your damaged creative self is invited to express joyful celebration-an activity in which God delights. Sacred Play is that quality of childlike rejoicing most lost in the church. It is the restoration of the healing power of joy expressed in the beauty of worship. Sacred Play explains the role of the artist in the local church. It invites you to discover your personal hidden artistry and shows you how to form teams of creative Christians to help the whole church experience the joy of knowing the heart of a creative God. Practical exercises at the end of each chapter assist in rediscovering "sacred play." Softcover / 125 pp.
