Today we begin at the beginning! The first two books of the Bible are simply stories. Origin stories of individuals, of a people, of hope, of despair, stories of deep sadness and great joy. They are stories that make us cringe and stories that make us dance. They are stories that contain all the complexities of life, and all the complexities of faith. They are stories that tell us about God, about ourselves and about those sacred relationships we hold with God and with one another. We're excited to get caught up in this story, and hope you will join us for the journey. Every Sunday for the next 7 weeks we will focus on a specific part of the story; then during the week, you are encouraged to read the rest of the story. This week, Read Genesis 1-11.
