CW82: In the image of God

The creation stories in Genesis 1 and 2 are endlessly fascinating. The language of God’s creation is at once both breathtakingly beautiful, and mysterious and strange. We hear God talking, speaking thought and intention into the cosmos, which coalesces into reality. All the things we know and encounter have their origin in the breath of God, God’s creative Spirit, bringing all things into existence from nothing. And from these first things all else unfolds in the course of God’s good time, from cosmic black holes to new species of creatures on our planet. We are still discovering the miracles of God’s creation.
