Looking for a missional hero? I am. So, of course you start with Jesus. So here is how he started teaching the new missional people around him to pray. Start praying to God the Father and tell him he is excellent and amazing.
I decided to give it a go and spent some time telling God how superlative I think he is. How our creativity, the artistic and architectural expression of our greatest artists only reflect principles and aspects of the things that God originated. God’s ideas, structures and creations are not expressions of another’s ideas. There are no original sounds, sound bites or loops that came before the music God created in the universe. The sound of crickets did not have existence or any expression before God made it. Silence did not either. God made it all. Dalí’s melting clock started with dripping pine sap. Gaudi’s buildings mimic nature. “Nude descending a stair case” was an attempt to express God’s 3d creation on a 2d plain. We mimic and re-express the things that God has made. God is superlative, even better than we could imagine. Hollowed be his name!.
