Every individual has some element of creativity within them in many different ways and forms. I don't think anyone is entirely uncreative, but for many people, the crush of daily life and making a living and raising a family, ordinary things, seem to push that creative impulse down to the bottom of the list of things to be done.
I believe that spending time alone in quiet and listening to the voice of God and your vocational call is important. That is something that our culture doesn't list high in the list of priorities. I think each of us has a call, a vocation, in which our own gifts will flourish if we follow the call. Every little bit of creative action and obedience to the Holy Spirit of God is going to forward the work of creation and enlarge our universe in a healing and redemptive way.
