The RCIA group had decided to continue meeting as a group for family Scripture reflection and action. Other family members were invited to join them. They chose to begin with the book of Genesis and consider the message for families today in the two creation stories. They were grateful that Bruce, an Old Testament scholar, could help them in their understanding.
Let what you heard from the beginning abide in you. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you then you will abide in the Son and in the Father. And this what he has promised us, eternal life. From 1 John 2:22-28
Pope Francis. The journey of reconciliation calls for listening and contemplation of the world that God has given us as a gift to make our common home. Natural resources, the many forms of life and the earth itself have been entrusted to us “to till and keep” (Gen 1:15), also for future generations, through the responsible and active participation of everyone. From 2020 World Day of Prayer for Peace Message 2.
