The Unknown Creative [1]: The Divine Hover

The Unknown Creative [1]: The Divine Hover

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. Genesis 1:1–2

Backstage. Out of the spotlight. Behind the scenes.

We all know that the names that make the credits are important to the movie, it’s just that we don’t seem near as interested as we are in the stars of the show.

Of course, if those “backstagers” didn’t do their work, we’d spot it pretty quickly.

The Holy Spirit is always there in the Bible. Always. But often just ‘off stage’, creatively working in, through, and with the characters in view. The way of Jesus will always require more creativity than we have alone, so this series, coinciding as it does with Pentecost Sunday, is an invitation for us to turn to the Bible and know the Holy Spirit a little bit better.
