Creation: Relationship & Fracture

Sep 13, 2020 | Sermons, zoom church

We are back to the Narrative Lectionary, and we kick off this year’s journey through the biblical text with a Genesis creation account. In it, humans are created from the earth, for the plants, intrinsically connected to one another, and intimately sculpted and in-spired by God our Maker. Almost as soon as these relationships with earth, humans, and God are crafted, there is fracturing of our primal inter-connectedness. Is there any word of hope for we who are choking on the wildfire smoke of those fractures today? [Sermon begins at 22:55]
