In the Beginning

We listen to the awesome words that recount the beginning of the universe. On fire with faith, our imaginations behold the work of God. God’s word is God’s work. This pattern recurs as a rhythm: “God said” … and then “God saw that it was good.”

The word “universe” literally means “The one thing that turns.” Make it personal—“The One who turns.” The description of creation takes place in thirty-four “turnings” we call “verses” in the Bible.

It took over three years for Michelangelo to recreate the creation of God onto the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in Rome. As you come to the place of the beginning of the Jewish Torah cycle, may the Bible’s 30,442 verses, turn your whole being each day into a sacred chapel/temple that reflects the beauty and handiwork of God.
