God creates order from disorder and we have been invited to co-create with Him. In the midst of chaos, “we associate peace with answers. God associates peace with Union.” In this conversation with Allen Arnold, author of Chaos Can’t, we discuss how we create around us from what is in us; that creating with God brings order and trueness to our lives, systems, and cultures that have become untrue and disordered.

    Thanks, guys! This was a lot of fun. Some key take-always for me were:

    “We have the choice. When there’s chaos around us, we don’t have to let that chaos within us.”

    And “Every choice you make is either fear or love based.” — wow, to ask myself before I do something, ‘am I doing this from a place of fear or love?’ That could shake things up!

    Brilliant! Thank you, Allen, for being on the podcast and sharing your insights about creativity.
