At a fall celebration called ArtPrize, the city of Grand Rapids came alive with the creativity of hundreds of artists from around the world. On one perfect evening in September, thousands of people gathered on the bridges over the Grand River to light and launch several thousand Chinese lanterns into the darkening skies. Families, children, teens, couples, tourists, people finishing their business day, friends and strangers worked together to ignite, lift, “ooh,” and “ahh” as the rising winds did their job. Still more people looked on from restaurants, streets, and office windows. How could one’s heart not be lifted?
A new thing.
A beautiful thing.
My hope is that this blog will offer the reader and the writer insight into the new things God is doing among us all.
