In the Image of God

George Bernard Shaw wrote: 

Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will. 

Shaw was no Christian, yet he has observed something about the creative process that has implications for our understanding of what it means to be made in the image of God, the ultimate and preeminent Creator. That human beings have the ability to create, to imagine and to express that imagination in time and space, is at least in part, what it means to be made in His image.
