The Genius of Genesis
The Great Invitation
Sermon Series 22nd August to 26th September
Unlocking the treasures of Genesis 1-3 and how they can change your life
Although controversy and disagreement surround the book of Genesis it is, no doubt, a work of inspired brilliance and a profound literary masterpiece. In recent centuries, Christians have busied themselves arguing how Genesis reconciles with science without appreciating how our understanding of both science and the text are growing and changing, and in the process losing so much of what Genesis is trying to help us understand. However we reconcile the Genesis account with science, it is wise to do so with grace and humility and certainly important not to vilifying those who think differently.
In this series, we will explore the first three chapters of Genesis and allow it to address us with its insights, rather than looking for it to answer our questions. As we put the ‘science’ question to one side we will explore the treasures waiting and accept its invitation to reframe our understanding of reality.
