Glory

Re:Verse reading–Genesis 11:1-9 (day six) Pastor Don has already written on the difference between the unity depicted in Genesis 11 and the kind prescribed for the church in John 17:21-23, but I can’t help but have a go too. It … Continue reading

Invitation into Bigness

The Goodness Charade

Re:Verse reading–Genesis 3:1-7  (day six) Becoming like God was not what they expected. Yes, their eyes were opened, but it did not have the desired affect. From the very first bite, it was not goodness they would enjoy, but despair, shame, and … Continue reading

Thou

Re: Verse reading–Genesis 1:26-28; 2:18-25 (day six) Then God said, “I now give you…” Genesis 1:29 It is no small thing, but it can be easily overlooked. God only addresses humankind with the second person pronoun, “you.” Not with any … Continue reading
