Creativity and violence

Missionary Oblates of Mary Father Ron Rolheiser writes a beautiful column on the grace that comes from authentic creativity and the way creativity can overcome violence.

This practical and life-giving message is for everyone, especially those who suffer physical violence by wars, guns and drugs and those who suffer non-physical violence such as meanspiritedness, loneliness and being unloved.
