I like to keep an eye on what Mary Portas is sharing these days; a beacon of optimism amidst the encircling media gloom. Goodbye, she says to boring chains of shops and hotels. Hello, spaces and places of creativity that feed the soul rather than sell us more stuff. This is important – the rekindling of creativity. Over the past few months, so many of us have seen the world in greyscale. Our conversations have been muffled by masks, a feeling of liquid fear (and collective grief) has numbed our senses, and we’re becoming acutely aware of the blank spaces that are growing around us. As we work out what the future means for our charities and churches, let’s lift our eyes heavenwards and see the tremendous opportunities out there.
