Today we go back to the start of it all…

We read and think about the story of creation in Genesis 1

How do you align the Genesis story with modern scientific thought?

Reflect

How do you hold together science and faith, especially concerning the creation stories?

What do you struggle with in holding the two together?

‘God saw that it was very good.’ (Gen. 1:31) What do you see that is very good?

Pray

For those who have lost any sense of their creative potential

For artists, performers, sculptors who struggle during the Covid lockdown

For boldness and the careful thought necessary to interpret the scriptures in new ways

For those who endure illness and chronic pain

OUR PRAYER

PRAYERS FOR THE WORLD

Act

The hymn ‘Morning has broken’ expresses the wonder of creation in song and poetry. Perhaps, our responses to creation are better represented in these ways than through argument and doctrine.

How can you respond to God’s world more creatively?
