Passage: Genesis 1

Speaker: John Walton

We often think of Genesis 1 as talking about cosmic origins and our thoughts consequently jump to what our modern science tells us about cosmic origins. If we want to get the full impact of Genesis 1 we need to understand its message of cosmic identity—what is this world that we live in? We will consider the analogy of a Vision Statement (as we use those today) to re-enchant creation with an adjusted view of God’s perspective on its identity.
