Reading: Conclusion and Epilogue And so, as we approach Christmas Day, "it may be extremely difficult for us in the modern age to feel close to Jesus of Nazareth, who lived in another world; it may be even more difficult to look forward to the day of His return; but more than ever it may be possible to experience the Spirit of Christ as a living Spirit who makes it possible to break through the boundaries of our imprisoned existence and makes us free to work for a new world" (p 12). 1) This is really what this discussion has been all about - how can we break through the boundaries of our imprisoned existence, and truly minister to others in the power and name of Jesus Christ. a) And so, as we wrap up this book, and this discussion, and as we head into a new year... what thought or summary would you like to carry with you, that might help you to truly lay down your life in creative ministry to another? 2) In the epilogue I think Henri did a wonderful thing. He published some of the questions and criticisms others had of this book. Perhaps you can identify with some of the questions others raised, and perhaps it explains why we had a hard time with some of these chapters. a) What does Henri's decision to publish these criticisms teach us about the art of Creative Ministry?
