The Creative Eye

IMG_6678-X3

I have been spending 100% of my time recently in the field of management. That is a noble endeavor, one that is sorely needed in the church. But it is not the entirety of what I have been called to do. To be able to give, there has to be something there to give from. In practical terms, that means that there needs to be some time set aside each week for creative intake.

This is intentional – not just watching or listening to something that you already know and like, or even just surfing the net. If you want to be inspired in your video or graphic arts looks, collect some great examples and see how you can adapt them to your needs. If you want to be inspired for your stage/platform “looks,” search for sites that cause you to think outside of the normal patterns of your day-to-day (including, hopefully, at times, the website you’re reading). I try to make reading a part of my daily plan – I also try to visit as many other churches as I can when I have off weekends. It refuels my tank!

Idea Of The Week: Personalized Info Booth

NP photo 1

I saw this on a trip to North Point Church in Atlanta last year – they have some folks out in the lobby with iPads that can quickly get info for people, or get them signed up for events, etc… A great example showing care to visitors and to the people that God has placed in our care. Good stuff!
