Genesis: The Book of Beginnings
November 21 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 11:00am on Tuesday, repeating until December 12, 2017
The First Presbyterian Church of New Canaan presents a discussion of Genesis: The Book of Beginnings. Reverend Mary Maple Thies will lead the conversation about How do you understand the two accounts of creation in Genesis? Why didn’t Adam and Eve die when they ate the forbidden fruit? What do you do with the anger of God which wipes out most of humanity in the flood? Why do we Christians even care about Abraham and Sarah and their infertility problem?
Genesis is a book of new beginnings at various stages in Israel’s early existence, but even more, it is a book of God’s promises to God’s people and to all peoples. The roots of all the rest of scripture are planted deep in Genesis; it is not only a book of beginning, it is the beginning of our understanding of God and ourselves in relation to God. So come, explore with us these beginnings. All Are Welcome!
