|Hope in the Dessert|
Margaret Almon and Wayne Stratz
But what about prayer, how does creativity come into place. Hanging out with Jesuits and those trained in Ignatian spirituality has helped. Imagine yourself into the Bible passage. Rewrite a passage to imagine how God would be speaking to you instead of Jacob or Mary. Take the basic principles of the Examen and play with it. Let it evolve into a prayer that is messy and risky.
What activity in your life takes you into the land of joy experienced by a child playing with his imagination at full tilt? Can you imagine being that focussed during prayer because you are being playful? I hope that we can.
