Our collective fixation on justification and being made right with God has sometimes had the effect of clouding out the grand plan God has for a restored heaven and earth where nothing is left untouched by the glory beauty and healing power of ChristI don t have much patience for the church s tendency to respond to injustice or crisis with prayer Prayer is great but it s not the only thing we can be doing Richard Dahstrom does not mince words in challenging this tendency directly addressing those who prefer to avoid action because Jesus will fix everything with the Second Coming and telling them they are emasculating the gospel into irrelevanceSo yeah I like this bookIt uses the analogy of becoming an artist to convey its point but the message throughout is that even our everyday small tasks like making a meal are opportunities to make use of our talents for the betterment of God s kingdom We aren t all called to become church planters in impoverished areas but we are all called to do Real love for God will be seen not in outward shows of religiositybut in love for and service to the poor and disenfranchised of this world

This was a FANTASTIC book to end the month and year with Richard Dahlstrom paints pun intended a beautiful picture of artistry as God s people using the primary colors of mercy justice and love to paint pictures of hope in this world As has happened often I got about 2 pages in put it down and ordered my own personal copy from Yay for Prime 2 day shippingYes I knew within two pages it was a book I will want to mark up read again pass around discuss As I said Dahlstrom draws from the artist pallette for his book about the people of God painting hope on the canvas of this world What a perfect metaphor His thoughts could be summed up in the idea that we color our worlds grey when we are known for what we are against instead of what we are for When we boldly brush on the canvas of this world what we are for we paint in vibrant and beautiful colors As a whole the church has suashed creativity in favor of consumerism and that has led to dull grey canvas It s time past time to suash consumerism in the Church which has killed off much than creativity and begin to infuse hope into the world once again using mercy justice and love Fantastic book I marked up the majority of chapters There was so much practical application and so much biblical sense presented Dahlstrom also talks about the pastels versus the bold colors of faith I really resonated with this discussion as I think most anyone who was birthed into the church would At some point my pastel faith got washed out and when bold colors were introduced it changed my entire worldDahlstrom has laid out a gracious and practical plea to be Artisans of Hope
