“The story of our faith begins with the Creation narratives, in which the act of Creation itself becomes the unfolding of God’s love for the whole world.

God’s love is written all over creation. It begins when God takes the deep and the darkness and, instead of destroying these things, makes them part of creation. God calls it very good. To me, this means that nature is good, we are good, and we are all created together by a loving God who destroys nothing in creating-deep and darkness, earth and light, knit together in a creation that is both unified and diverse.

… Love always has the last word. It is the fabric of the earth.

… Our job in walking the path of love is to keep looking with new eyes, over and over and over again, trying to take in the manifold gifts before us.” Becca Stevens, Walking Bible Study: The Path to Love
