Prayer-Dear Lord, Open my heart and open my mind and help me learn.
The next Book we will study will be the very first book, Genesis-or Beginning. Why would we study that book? Haven’t we read it over and over before? It’s too old and there is nothing in it that we need to learn. Isn’t it just a series of fables and folk tales?
If we are serious about learning more about Christianity we need to have a firm foundation, we need to hit the basics. Genesis is the bases of all we believe. If we don’t know where we have been as a people, how can we tell where we are going? We will study both creation stories, look at Noah and the flood, study Abraham and his decedents, both sets. We will learn about the patriarchs, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph.
These are the neat stories we studied as kids,( last year,) This is a long book, and it will take more than a few weeks to do right. Be patient, be open minded, and get ready to have fun. We will go back from New Testament book to Old Testament book from now on.
Prayer-Lord-Thank you for letting us read and learn as a group. Watch over this family as we go through life. Go-Fight-Win. Amen.
