Anchor Concept: Creativity/Design (PDF File)

CREATIVITY/DESIGN

All persons are made in the image and likeness of God, whose creative power is constantly at work in the universe around us. By using their knowledge and skills with creative purpose, human persons are thus capable of producing great and beautiful works through the arts and the sciences. Creative use of talents to reflect the beauty of creation, to serve human needs or solve human problems glorifies God and reflects the noble nature and glorious destiny of humankind revealed by the risen Christ.
