SERMON TITLE: “Starting the New Year Well: Creatively”
SERMON TEXT: Genesis 1:1-5, 14-19, 26-28; and 2:1-3
PREACHER: Rev. Kim James
OCCASION: January 29, 2017, at First UMC
Wasn’t it beautiful on Friday morning? With a much-needed reprieve from snow removal, we were able to take the time to appreciate that the sky was blue, the sun was shining, the mountains were covered in white snow, and there was all that thick, gorgeous frost on the tree branches. God the artist was definitely at work creating a spectacular scene.
Ever since January 1st, I’ve been preaching a sermon series called “Starting the New Year Well.” So far, we’ve started the New Year well mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Over the next few weeks, we will continue this series, starting the New Year well societally, relationally, and financially. Today, though, I invite you to consider the story of creation in Genesis 1 and 2, so we can learn from God about starting the New Year well creatively.
