Bible Passage: Genesis 1:1-5 

Perhaps no other words are more important to the journey we call ‘life’ than the first five words of the Bible.  They state clearly that the world is not a cosmic accident but a created home in which we are confronted with an anthropology that is diametrically opposed to the contemporary belief that we are “autonomous individuals who find our greatest fulfillment in breaking free from all external norms” (Alan Noble).   Instead we are created image bearers who find our identity as those who are dependent on God and one another for life.
