Creativity: Touching the Divine

Aired 2008-09. Presented by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops "Creativity: Touching the Divine" brought together artists and non-artists who have experienced the joyful tandem of spirituality and creativity. Viewers were inspired to rethink the possibility for creativity in their own lives, regardless of their circumstances or abilities. "Being creative means to develop the skill to listen, to silence the ego, and to let creativity come from the soul rather than the self," comments Thomas Moore, author of the best-selling Care of the Soul. Joining him were glass harpist Jamey Turner, who always seeks the extraordinary in the ordinary; and the late Madeleine L'Engle, who penned the young adult classic, A Wrinkle in Time; and Urban Family Institute founder Kent Amos of Washington, D.C., who lives the African axiom, "It takes a whole village to raise a child."
