Individual Creativity

You won't find the following passage on creation in the second section of Creative Theology because along the way it hit the editing room floor. But here...well here, you can read it:

I thanked God for making mountains. In truth, we had only experienced a microcosm of the earth, let alone the cosmos, but in my impatient and finite mind it seemed like I had traveled every inch of the globe.  I am pretty sure God was trying to teach me a lesson about life during that road trip, but it could have just been the fields whispering to me in their lazy drawl.  I thought during the stretch of nothingness,  God had to have had more up His sleeve than this. What if the entire earth looked like that section of the Midwest? God would have much less mystery and awe attached to His name. Much in the same way that everywhere in the world has vastly unique qualities, each person that inhabits the earth is entirely unique. Why would we take a God of infinite power and ability and assume that He only made a few ways to display the creativity inside of us? Not only would we be boring, but we would compare ourselves to one another and jockey for position among others for who does what best, which would lead to endless envy, jealousy and bitterness. It might even lead to intolerance, hatred and war...
