Today's reading is the beginning of the story of creation. We're starting a new series at Laurelton looking at some important stories in the Bible in order. It will end up being something like a whirlwind tour of the whole Bible story. Where better to start our tour than with the very beginning? So today we begin at the beginning. As we'll talk about on Sunday, there are really two stories of creation in the Bible. The first gives a very orderly account of creation day by day, while the second changes the order and focuses on human life. Enjoy as we read this familiar story.
