A greater imagination

Ally and I are watching an episode of Voyager. It's the one where they encounter species 8472 for those who know these things. In the search for a solution to a problem, Captain Janeway visits her holographic mentor, Leonardo Da Vinci. This is what he says to her:

When one's imagination cannot provide and answer, one must seek out a greater imagination.

I continue to believe that the challenge we face in the church today is not in the designing of new programmes but in the search for a new imagination. Maybe Janeway's imaginary friend has some wisdom for us in the search!
