Adorning the Dark — Conversations on Creative Community

Creativity can come in many forms, and we are each given different talents and abilities with which we can “adorn the dark with the light of Christ” – but this happens best in the company of others. This book-study aims to provide a platform for discussion around the cultivation of creativity within community.

"My counselor zeroed in on the root causes of my anxiety, explaining the mechanisms of why I was feeling the way I was, and what to do about it. She was very loving and compassionate and approached my situation with a technical mindset as well. A very rare combination."
