Why do we exist? How did we get here? What does it mean to be human? These questions have haunted humanity since the beginning of time. We have a profound fascination with the origin of the cosmos. Hoping to find meaning in life, humans have searched for an explanation of our origins in many places, from a pantheon of gods in a cosmic battle to the Big Bang.
For many of us, our childhoods were shaped by the stories found in the early chapters of Genesis. We learned about Adam and Eve, Noah and the Ark, and the Tower of Babel. In many ways, these stories gave us a sense of right and wrong. But what if there is more to these stories than we learned in Sunday school? What if these stories were not intended to teach children morals, but to shape a definitive vision of God, humanity, and creation? Join us on Sundays as we seek to recover our origin story in the Book of Genesis.
