I was viewing an interesting video over the weekend made by a pastor who owns a brewery. The brewery is called 2 Beers. He said after 2 beers the walls come down and people are a little more open and honest about life. Here's the link On Human Being, Doing, and Brewing. Anyway, this guy talked about how being made in God's image, in part, means we are able to 'create'. Which reminded me of a very good article from the Art of Manliness (see link under my blog list on right) called Modern Maturity - Create More, Consume Less. The thrust of that article is that men create, boys consume.
So, my question today is: Are you a creator?
In my own life, I enjoy playing music. I sometimes think up (or do I hear?) musical passages. I have recorded some of them in the past and it's fun to go through this process. I could say I'm creating anytime I write anything of substance, like these blogs, to anybody. And I enjoy that too. I sometimes have serious talks with my kids and I think I am helping create their perception of reality. My wife likes to make cards (extensive amount of tools/supplies for this), decorate and cook new things.
What do you create?Or are you more consumer-minded?
