WHEN YOU READ A BOOK THAT STIRS YOUR SPIRIT AND CAPTURES YOUR IMAGINATION, WHAT IS IT IN THAT TALE THAT MAKES YOU FEEL SO AWAKENED AND ALIVE?
It is an echo; a reminder of who we are. The redeemed imagination allows the believer to see the world, and his own life, through divine eyes. To play a role in the building of a Kingdom (in the already and the not yet) whose glory we can scarcely comprehend.
Artists and pastors play crucial parts in aiding the rest of us in this calling, but it is the calling of every Christian. Yet the separation of imagination from the church has left us with a disenchanted Christianity and a slew of vapid books, music, and movies.
The disenchanted, the lost, and the Church itself need a renaissance of the Christian imagination.
Your Imagination Redeemed in the Anselm Society's annual conference. From Friday night through Saturday night, April 26-27, we will seek inspiration and refreshment as we explore the redeemed imagination together.
