Be Not Afraid…of Difference – Sherri Guenther Trautwein

 

Scripture Reading: Genesis 1:1-5

 

The story of creation is a story where God creates something different, something other, than God’s Self. This difference is not fearful or troubling. It is declared to be good!

 

When we read the creation story through the lens of facing fear with faith, how might we understand what it means to respond to difference with love and as fertile ground for establishing peaceful relationships?
