Coleridge: transformation through participation

When we make—whether that be a cup of tea, a meal, a sculpture, or a poem—we are participating in that great act of making in Genesis…

Not just participation but transformation!

God makes the world anew even as we participate in it.

Dr Sarah Golsby-Smith, Gospel Conversations

Transformation through participation really resonates with me and the more times I’ve watched Sarah unpack Coleridge’s This Lime Tree Bower My Prison, the more I’ve got out of it. Joyful participation with Creation, Humanity, and God leads to Shalom and UR. Brothers and sisters, I hope you find this as edifying as I have.
