Creativity from Chaos

Seasons of uncertainty and disorder can be difficult as they challenge the routines of daily life. Yet, out of these moments can come creative ideas and innovative solutions that generate positive changes in workplaces, churches, ministries, or personal lives. 

In the most recent episode from our Equip & Engage limited podcast series “See the Good,” we interviewed Jamie Winship about his experience and perspective engaging in high conflict and chaotic environments. 

Jamie co-founded Identity Exchange with his wife, Donna Winship, after years of living and working in some of the most turbulent areas around the world in an effort to bring peace to communities. He shared how their work helps people live fearlessly by applying biblical truths and principles in order to overcome self-identity misperceptions. 

Jamie’s experiences have shown him the creativity that can emerge out of conflict. “Chaos can lead to incredible creativity because systems move from order to disorder to reorder. Disorder, although it’s uncomfortable, is always valuable for reordering things that you might have not thought about changing.” 

Over the course of history, times of chaos and change have led to great innovation and invention. For churches, this season has halted regular in-person gatherings, a vital component of our spiritual formation and fostering community. However, in the midst of all the change and uncertainty, it’s encouraging to see how churches and organizations around the world can bring positive change to their neighborhood, city, and church community. 

Whether it is exploring new ways to extend authentic engagement beyond Sundays, or finding new and profound ways to meet the needs of your community, you can play a vital role in creating reorder out of the disorder.
