God Saw That It Was Good
(Benjamin Perry)

“Perhaps the murky chaos of the anthropocene may be our opportunity to act as co-creators with God and all living things.”

What new life can you grow out of the chaos around you?

Genesis 1:11-12, 20-21, 25
Then God said, “Let the earth put forth vegetation: plants yielding seed, and fruit trees of every kind on earth that bear fruit with the seed in it.” And it was so. And God saw that it was good…And God said, “Let the waters bring forth swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the dome of the sky.” So God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, of every kind, with which the waters swarm, and every winged bird of every kind. And God saw that it was good. God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth….And God saw that it was good.
