The Beginning, a Very Good Place to Start

The Beginning, a Very Good Place to Start

Sep 10, 2017

Preacher: Rev. Elisabeth Williams

Summary:

This Sunday marks the start of the use of the Narrative Lectionary, a way of hearing the whole Scripture story as a flowing narrative. We start with the beginning, with Genesis 1 -- a hymn to God the Creator of everything. It is also the starting point for the on-going creation story. God doesn't stop creating by resting on the seventh day; God continues to create and calls us to use our God-given talents to aid in this creation. This is hope at it's finest; we don't own creation, we partner with God in maintaining and advancing creation.
