This is the first of what I hope to be many "Creatives in The Wild" posts on this site, highlighting a different person exercising their God-given creativity in traditional, unorthodox, or completely spontaneous ways.
Our part in the “human project” is to cultivate the earth that God has placed us in. It started in a garden, but now our “gardens” are our neighborhoods, our workplaces, our businesses, our families.
This is my big brother, Chad. He recently moved cross country and landed on a noisy street in an urban area. A while back he decided to try and slow traffic down in front of his house by simply taking
his painting outside. It worked. Cars slowed down. Neighbors introduced themselves. A reporter for the local paper even stopped and talked with him about what he was doing! I love it. I love how beauty wins. I love how it gathers a crowd. We were made for this.
How are you cultivating your modern-day garden? I’d love to hear about it!
