“The earth was a formless void and darkness covered the face of the deep.”
Does this sound like a description of your life? It did to me. This sermon does a deep dive into the hope built into the Creation story from the very first verse. That formless void contains all that ever has been and the potential for all that is yet to come. It is the beginning place. We have no need to fear it; we only need to look around for the Spirit of God, hovering somewhere nearby to bring a new, wonder-filled world into being.
