Call to Worship: When God Imagined Me

In the midst of darkness & chaos…
God imagined.

In the fury & darkness…
God imagined a world filled with trees, and blue skies and fluffy white clouds.

In the meadow, God stood and…
imagined foxes, bluebirds, and slithering snakes.

In a world of rainstorms and wildlife and cattle and grasses blowing in the breeze…
God imagined humanity. God imagined the continuum from man to woman. 

In a world teeming with billions of people…
God imagined me. 

God imagined you and God imagined me. We are created in the image of God.
God imagined us all. God loves each of us. 

Let us worship with the same imagination as the creating One!
Amen.

    I’m just not sure what “continuum from man to woman” means. We are not polar opposites. Culture may determine roles for us, but I do not see where God said, “I will make you inherently different.”
