Creating

Creation-Art

Sculptures and Photography are my favourite creative hobbies balancing intellectual and management work, mainly done in the peaceful environment of the holiday home in France (Burgundy) in an old mill. “Creation-Art” as title summarizes the intention: Being just an instrument of the Creator to express the abundant beauty, playful diversity and simple joy of the creation. A few examples of my works:


Window

Window, 155x310cm, made of over 800 precious stones (agate) with lead, as the medieval church windows. Four elements soil, water, fire and air and in the white middle circle crystal agates, symbolizing the Cross and God’s Spirit. The “DNA of life” flows like a file of crystal larger agates from heaven to earth and from earth to heaven.

The window is donated to the new Church of the new Theological Seminary in Wuhan/China and will be installed in the second half of 2017.

Aphorisms

Gratitude

Gratitude is
the foundation of ethics.
Leads to awe
Protects from avarice
Opens the heart to share
Fosters modesty
Reduces anxiety
Discovers uncomplicated solutions
Joie de vivre
Prolongs life
(as researchers have shown).
It is at the centre of the faith
that everything is
a gift – from the Giver of Life.

Political ethics

The most important aspect of political ethics:
God is not human.
Therefore
no human being is God.
Therefore
absolutism, dictatorship and theocracy
are blasphemy.
They give one human being absolute power.
Therefore
Separation of powers, limitation of power,
accountability and responsibility
are pillars of good governance
and political ethics.
