TALK: Consider some of these ideas:
In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth, 2the earth was a formless void and darkness covered the face of the deep, while a wind from God swept over the face of the waters. (Genesis 1:1-2)
God is hard at work crafting each aspect of the universe, sparing no detail. But even the Almighty Creator takes time to rest. What does it mean for God to be the beginning and the end?
- What does it mean that you are created in God’s image?
- What about yourself reminds you of God?
- Wonder: What is God’s favorite thing that God created?
PRAY: Beloved Creator, everything in heaven and earth bears your signature. May we ever rejoice that you have made us, and that you have made us your own, through the loving-kindness of Jesus our Savior. Amen.
BLESS: May God continue to create and re-create you each day. Amen.
