About eARThThis is a spiritual ministry focused on connecting to God through nature, creativity and giving back. It is founded on the principle that eARTh is the canvas of God, the Master Artist, designed to show all of us the way to our own inner creativity, dreams, and gifts if we will just open our hearts. The natural outcome of discovering that is a greater closeness with God and discovering the song you were born to sing to bless others.
This ministry is intended to be open to all since all are creative and the eARTh was given to all as a pathway to connecting with God, the spiritual source of all creativity and dreams. We are all part of eARTh, and it is through becoming aware of our deep interconnectedness with the nature that we are able to open up to and grow closer to the Source of All Creation and discover our own unique dreams, creativity, and gifts which we were born to share with others. That is the process of bringing Heaven to Earth.
We plan to leave the final picture up to the Master Creator, but preliminary ideas include the following. Our first event will be a Plein Air 'Creativity' session at historic Sardis Church in Buckhead, Atlanta, with the themed topic being 'God Outside the Church Walls'. Check the Events section out for more details.
1 - NATURE: Plein Air 'creativity' sessions outdoors, learning sources of nature inspiration for meditation, regular themed nature topics to focus your 'creation' on.
2 - CREATIVITY: 'Creativity' sessions designed to find your inner voice, learning sources of creativity inspiration for self-guided activities, group sharing.
3 - GIVEBACK: interactive group sharing sessions of your creativity, gifts, and dreams, develop and work in partnership with other organizations (churches, shelters, non-profits, nature preservation societies) to create opportunities for giveback such as art show to benefit or donation of artwork, nature and creative volunteer opportunities (e.g. natural park cleanup or hospital mural painting, etc.).
